@Luiz, could you please provide some link to available software that
*evaluates* the randomness of some data? (possibly something in Lua)
That would be very useful in checking the reliability of the various
libraries that we come across. There was a DIEHARD library for this,
but that was quite a few years ago. There must be something more
recent out there, I assume, but I am not sure. Do you know of any?
