The random-bytestring package

[Tags:library, mit]

Efficient generation of random bytestrings. The implementation populates uninitialized memory with uniformily distributed random 64 bit words. The words are generated using the PRNG from the mwc-random package. The generated byte strings are suitable for statistical applications. They are not suitable for cryptographic applications.
