Quantum Random Bit Generator
I am working on a personal project which requires me to generate large amounts of truly random numbers (hint: its about probabilities).
but as we know, rand() and srand() are only psuedo-random number generators, and poor ones at that.
thanks to the almighty google, I was able to find a truly interesting website, which uses a piece of hardware called the Quantum Random Bit Generator. The device uses the only known source of true randomness in the universe, namely quantum uncertainty, to generate truly random bits. The website provides free C++ and DLLs which users can download and use to download data directly from the device. Needless to say, this is not only extremely cool but also VERY helpful for my project.
However, I am getting errors when I try to compile the cpp's they provided. My debugging skills are amateur at best, so I was hoping someone on the forum would be able to help me out with this :D
I will post the errors in my next post. What is the best way to post the code? Should I just attach the original cpp's and headers, or should I paste the code (its a lot :confused: ), or should I paste only those lines which are causing the errors?
Assistance will be MUCH appreciated :D
