What I really doubt is that now same integer seed on little-endian and big-endian give different random sequences. Is this important? If yes, I can add bytes-swapping. On other hand, non-integer seed already give platform-depending results (the hashing used). What you think about using a buffer instead a hash for bytes and bytearrays (and all other seeds supported buffer protocol)? It can increase entropy. Of course, it should be another issue if you approve it. ---------- Added file: http://bugs.python.org/file28019/random_seed_2.patch _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue16496> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
