Bug#491634: ITP: libbsd-arc4random-perl -- CPAN module BSD::arc4random

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Thorsten Glaser <tg@mirbsd.de>

* Package name    : libbsd-arc4random-perl
  Version         : 1.30
  Upstream Author : Thorsten Glaser <tg@mirbsd.de>
* URL             : http://www.mirbsd.org/man3/arc4random
* License         : MirOS Licence (same as package mksh)
  Programming Lang: C, Perl
  Description     : CPAN module BSD::arc4random

I've prepared a package of a Perl module wrapping the arc4random(3)
family of functions into ithreads-safe Perl functions and adding some
syntactic sugar. The libbsd package’s implementation of arc4random(3)
is used instead of the included convenience copy. This package makes
access to a self-seeding PRNG easy, for example in programmes that can
be extended by Perl plugins, such as irssi.
