NAME

Crypt::Random::Source::Factory - Load and instantiate sources of random data

VERSION

version 0.12

SYNOPSIS

    use Crypt::Random::Source::Factory;
    my $f = Crypt::Random::Source::Factory->new;
    my $strong = $f->get_strong;
    my $weak = $f->get_weak;
    my $any = $f->get;

DESCRIPTION

This class implements a loading and instantiation factory for Crypt::Random::Source objects.
If $ENV{CRYPT_RANDOM_NOT_PLUGGABLE} is set then only a preset list of sources will be tried. Otherwise Module::Find will be used to locate any installed sources, and use the first available one.

METHODS

get %args

Instantiate any random source, passing %args to the constructor.
The "type" argument can be "weak", "strong" or "any".

get_weak %args

get_strong %args

Instantiate a new weak or strong random source.
