Subject: Re: [PHC] Best RNG for filling memory?

package for benchmarking salsa20.  Do you know where I can get one that
simply spits out random numbers for a stream cipher that I can easily

MARC speeds up ARC4 by almost 2X, making it speed competitive with Blake2.
 Blake2 is based on ChaCha, which in turn is based on Salsa20.  From what
