RAND_load_file(3) OpenSSL RAND_load_file(3)NAME
RAND_load_file, RAND_write_file, RAND_file_name - PRNG seed file
const char *RAND_file_name(char *buf, size_t num);
int RAND_load_file(const char *filename, long max_bytes);
int RAND_write_file(const char *filename);
RAND_file_name() generates a default path for the random seed file. buf points to a buffer of size num in which to store the filename. The
seed file is $RANDFILE if that environment variable is set, $HOME/.rnd otherwise. If $HOME is not set either, or num is too small for the
path name, an error occurs.
RAND_load_file() reads a number of bytes from file filename and adds them to the PRNG. If max_bytes is non-negative, up to to max_bytes are
read; starting with OpenSSL 0.9.5, if max_bytes is -1, the complete file is read.
RAND_write_file() writes a number of random bytes (currently 1024) to file filename which can be used to initialize the PRNG by calling
RAND_load_file() in a later session.
RAND_load_file() returns the number of bytes read.
RAND_write_file() returns the number of bytes written, and -1 if the bytes written were generated without appropriate seed.
RAND_file_name() returns a pointer to buf on success, and NULL on error.

I have seen some misinformation regarding Unix file permissions. I will try to set the record straight. Take a look at this example of some output from ls:
$ ls -ld /usr/bin /usr/bin/cat
drwxrwxr-x 3 root bin 8704 Sep 23 2004 /usr/bin
-r-xr-xr-x 1 bin bin ... (6 Replies)

Suppose I have a main() function with only one malloc statement allocating say some 1 gb memory. Also say my system has 1 gb of ram.
The program above exits without freeing the memory.
In this case will the 1 gb of heap memory be returned... (9 Replies)
I'm trying to install a PGX32 video card on my Sparc 10 Ultra running Solaris 10.

I'm writing a short script to check if a continuous port is running on a server.

I installed NetBSD 6.1.2 amd64 and can't find the apm utility. Is it not in the base system?
Is it necessary to recompile the default amd64 kernel to use apm?
Or is there a new method for power management and suspend/resume? (2 Replies)

Usually when I on the evening go to bed I take some interesting book with me. I read it for a while to get me down to sleep. Probably most people seek information from the Nett by googleing but I am so oldfashioned I prefer a real book ;)
