NAMErandom - Create and manipulate randomizer channels
SYNOPSISpackage require Tcl package require memchan random
DESCRIPTIONrandom 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.
OPTIONSMemory channels created by random provide one additional option to set or query. -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.
