realrand 1.0.2

A lot of algorithms in cryptography etc. depend on good random numbers, i.e. random numbers that are "real" random and not just generated by a so called pseudo-random generator. You cannot create real random numbers using a computer and an algorithm. Only nature creates real randomness (just take a look around the next time you are surrounded by a group of people.). Real randomness occurs e.g. in atmospheric noise, during radioactive decay, or in a lava lamp. Fortunately, you do not have to listen to an old radio the whole day or, even worse, deposit some uranium in your living room and observe it with a Geiger-Müller tube. Other people do so (in a slightly modified manner, of course) and they kindly make their results public.
