Return Value

Type Description
uint64_t A 64 bit pseudo random value

Description

The function httplib_get_random() returns a 64 bit wide pseudo random value. The calculation uses a mix of two random generator functions and the volatile part of a high speed timer value, which makes the result of the function useable in many situations. The implementation is independent of pseudo random number generators provided by the operating system or compiler run time library and will therefore give a consistent performance independent on the platform used.
