Random functions

Synopsis

Functions

void wget_random_init (void)
void wget_random_exit (void)
int wget_random (void)
void wget_srandom (unsigned int seed)

Detailed Description

This is wrapper code around gnulib's srandom_r() and random_r() with automatic seeding

Function Documentation

void wget_random_init (void)

Random API initialization, allocating/preparing the internal resources.

On systems with automatic library constructors, this function doesn't have to be called explicitly.

This function is not thread-safe.

void wget_random_exit (void)

Random API deinitialization, free'ing all internal resources.

On systems with automatic library destructors, this function doesn't have to be called explicitly.

This function is not thread-safe.

int wget_random (void)

Returns

Random value between 0 and RAND_MAX

This functions wraps around gnulib's random_r(). It performs a thread-safe seeding on the first use, if not done before by wget_srandom();

void wget_srandom (unsigned int seed)

Parameters

seed Value to seed the random generator

This functions wraps around srandom_r() to make a thread-safe seeding for wget_random().
