The BSD::arc4random module provides a Perl API for the arc4random(3)
suite of functions and a few natively implemented functions.
Exposed functions are: have_kintf (ability to push entropy back to
the kernel); arc4random, arc4random_bytes, arc4random_uniform, the
RANDOM variable (get entropy); arc4random_stir (next time used, some
entropy from the kernel is first requested); arc4random_addrandom
(add user data to SRNG state); arc4random_push[bk] (push user data
to kernel RNG if supported; add kernel data or, if not supported,
user data to SRNG); the ability to "tie" variables to this module
for retrieving and storing entropy (e.g. in $RANDOM).
