NAME

       nettle-lfib-stream - pseudorandom generator

SYNOPSIS

       nettle-lfib-stream [seed]

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page documents briefly the nettle-lfib-stream command.  This manual page was
       written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a
       manual page.

       nettle-lfib-stream  outputs  a  sequence  of pseudorandom (non-cryptographic) bytes, using
       Knuth's lagged fibonacci generator, optionally using the integer seed as the seed.  If  no
       seed is given, time(2) is used.

       Warning:  The  stream  is  useful  for  testing,  but  should  not  be  used  to  generate
       cryptographic keys or anything else that needs real randomness.
