random - Create and manipulate randomizer channels
package require Tcl
package require memchan
- creates a random channel which absorbs everything written
into it and uses it as a seed for a random number generator. This
generator is used to create a random sequence of bytes when reading from
the channel. It is not possible to seek the channel.
Memory channels created by random
provide one additional option to set or
- -delay ?milliseconds?
- A random channel is always writable and readable.
This means that all fileevent-handlers will fire continuously. To
avoid starvation of other event sources the events raised by this channel
type have a configurable delay. This option is set in milliseconds and
defaults to 5.
