This is a dynamic module with a function that reads from
/dev/urandom ... so more random numbers with `random-urandom'
than with `random' (since Lisp cannot read from /dev/urandom
because it's a non-regular file - IIUC?) - so instead this
uses the same C as in pwgen(1) to do it, pretty simple I
guess :P

So now one can do (random-urandom) ... like any other
Lisp function and be on everyone else's level. Only cooler B)

See a very long discussion on gmane.emacs.help ...

Anyway, one C file, one C header file, and one Makefile here:


Just do 'make run'.

Keep it real time ...
