What is the canonical way to get data from /dev/random?
Specifically: having opened the file, how do I read the stream?
I'm currently using


  union {
    float f;
    char c[4];
  } foo;

  foo.f = 0.0;

  fscanf(rand_fp,"%4c",foo.c);


        which doesn't seem to produce anywhere near "random bytes" as
promised by the man page.
