7.5.19 SRFI-27 - Sources of Random Bits

This subsection is based on the specification of SRFI-27 written by Sebastian Egner.

This SRFI provides access to a (pseudo) random number generator; for Guile’s built-in random number facilities, which SRFI-27 is implemented upon, See Random. With SRFI-27, random numbers are obtained from a random source, which encapsulates a random number generation algorithm and its state.
