in reply to Poor randomness with File::Temp and fork().

If you want true randomness you could buy yourself a generator that connects via USB or you could interface to Fourmilab's HotBits random number generator. Fourmilab is the website of the founder of Autodesk.

    Net::Random uses Hotbits as one of its sources.

    But my own local USB randomness device would be very useful - do you have any pointers to one?
