NAME

Crypt::Random::Source::Weak::rand - Use "rand" to create random bytes

VERSION

version 0.12

SYNOPSIS

    use Crypt::Random::Source::Weak::rand;
    my $p = Crypt::Random::Source::Weak::rand->new;
    $p->get(1024);

DESCRIPTION

This is a weak source of random data, that uses Perl's builtin "rand" function.

METHODS

seed @blah

Sets the random seed to a checksum of the stringified values of @blah.
There is no need to call this method unless you want the random sequence to be identical to a previously run, in which case you should seed with the same value.

get $n

Produces $n random bytes.
