Split `Random::Formatter` from securerandom

Description

Now Random::Formatter methods are defined in securerandom.rb, since it was split from SecureRandom module historically.
However this module does not need to be SecureRandom but just to respond to bytes method.
I propose to move Random::Formatter module to another file, random_formatter.rb or random/formatter.rb.
And keep only that file in ruby core and remove from securerandom library in future.

+1, I agree Random::Formatter should be defined in core, along Random which is already core.

[ruby/securerandom] Split Random::Formatter from SecureRandom [Feature #18190]

https://github.com/ruby/securerandom/commit/1e57277b9e

Updated by Eregon (Benoit Daloze) about 1 year ago

To clarify, random/formatter is now a stdlib (not loaded by default).

Random::Formatter is defined in core but has few methods before require 'random/formatter':

$ ruby -e 'puts Random::Formatter.instance_methods(false)'
rand
random_number
$ ruby -rrandom/formatter -e 'puts Random::Formatter.instance_methods(false)'
random_number
uuid
rand
alphanumeric
hex
random_bytes
base64
urlsafe_base64
