New to Ubuntu, but eager to learn. Teaching myself to program as we speak, learning ruby and python, if anyone has any suggestions or ideas for tutorials let me know, some of the tutorials have not been as accurate as i would like (the code from them didn't work).

comment should i use urandom or openssl_random_pseudo_bytes?
as a learning developer i feel that i should thoroughly explore the code i am learning, to give me a better grasp of it and what it does. so down the road when i am using libraries like phpass i will have a better command of what they are doing to handle debugging, and many other thing, what i learn doing this could lead to learning any number of other things.

comment should i use urandom or openssl_random_pseudo_bytes?
doesnt have to be readable and thank you, and i was aware of of the second second parameter and had used it to test my system to see if it had enough randomness and entropy, i scoured the doc pages on both before i asked the question, i am writing this more to advance my knowledge than i am to do production development.
