Crypt::URandom might come handy for portability.
It’s no mistery that I’ve been looking at ways to generate a random salt lately, where in Random bytes and co. I happily declared:
In my typical situation, though, I’m in a Linux environment not from ages ago, so we might rely on
While still true for me, if you need something a bit more portable you might want to look into Crypt::URandom:
