i wrote a feature request some weeks ago.


Hello GNUBG,

i don't want to enter manual dice.

Is there an interface for an external dice module? I am looking for an external 
dice module, too.

Alternatively, would it be possible to generate a file of the dice GNUBG 
received from random.org?

Great program. Thanks,



I received a personal mail questioning why i was interested in such a feature. 
Well, i am not the type of guy who trusts software. I am able to review the 
GNUBG source code but it is a huge monster and lacks clarity. Furthermore I 
don't compile the code myself. 

The possibility to get a file of the random numbers GNUBG received from 
random.org would help. I don't want to trust a piece of software where i can 
have proof of the correctness.

This is no personal suspiciousness I just have a bad feeling about so-called 
"randomness" in gambling software (especially backgammon and poker servers).

Thanks for any comments and maybe help,
