Random number generator for linux based mobile devices


Dear All,

I have searched the net but couldn't fine something useful. I would like to ask that is there any random number generator for Linux based mobile devices. it also includes Android and iphone. Does these devices also supports /dev/random as in Linux.

Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.

regards,

Khodier,

Liking and disliking is not an option I am doing my project in C and cant switch to Java for such a small module. I just want to know that does the linux-based mobile devices support /dev/random or not?

Thanks and regards,
