Spectra

Spectra is a simple tool designed to aid in evaluating the quality of random numbers generated by TRNGs and PRNGs. It does this by counting the occurrences of characters within a given input file to help detect perceived bias, and then visualizes the data as colored (or black and white) pixels in an image file to aid in detection of repeating patterns. As the human mind is exceptionally good at picking up on patterns that might otherwise be difficult to detect mathematically, Spectra allows the user to rapidly make a determination on the repeatability of numbers generated from the suspect RNG.
