Ticket #64 (closed feature: fixed)
Parrot needs a source of entropy
|Reported by:||cotto||Owned by:||dukeleto|
Parrot needs a way to get entropy from the underlying system. runtime/parrot/library/uuid.pir the string hash seed init code need it. There is currently some prng functionality in src/util.c, but it's only as unpredictable as the seed data. It'd also be good for this entropy to be accessible via PIR, either by having the interp grab some seed entropy for the prng at initialization or directly, through a new opcode.
