Hasard is a pseudo-random random number generator (PRNG) library. It includes multiple engines (algorithms), examples: Park-Miller, Mersenne Twister and GNU/Linux built-in random PRNG. It has simple API but with strong code, eg. PRNG seed can be generated using strong entropy (hardware random number generator like /dev/random on GNU/Linux). The library is written in C and a Python binding is available. "Hasard" is the french word for "randomness".
