Crypt::Random::Source:UsereContributed Perl DocuCrypt::Random::Source::Base(3)

NAME
       Crypt::Random::Source::Base - Abstract base class for
       Crypt::Random::Source classes

VERSION
       version 0.12

SYNOPSIS
	   use Moo;
	   extends qw(Crypt::Random::Source::Base);

DESCRIPTION
       This is an abstract base	class.

       In the future it	will be	a role.

METHODS
   get $n, %args
       Gets $n random bytes and	returns	them as	a string.

       This method may produce fatal errors if the source was unable to
       provide enough data.

   read	$buf, $n, [ $off ]
       This method is cannibalized from	IO::Scalar. It provides	an IO::Handle
       work-alike.

       Note that subclasses override this to operate on	a real handle directly
       if available.

   seed	@stuff
       On supporting sources this method will add @stuff, whatever it may be,
       to the random seed.

       Some sources may	not support this, so be	careful.

   available
       This is a class method, such that when it returns true calling "new"
       without arguments on the	class should provide a working source of
       random data.

       This is use by Crypt::Random::Source::Factory.

   rank
       This is a class method, with some futz value for	a ranking, to help
       known good sources be tried before known	bad (slower, less available)
       sources.

   get_data %Params
       Provided	for compatibility with Crypt::Random
