Pure and Effectful Functions : Sample functions I Mathematics I double x = cos(0.34) ; I double p = pow(2.0,5.0); I Random numbers I srand(seed); Seeds the pseudo-random number generator. I r = rand(); Returns the next pseudo-random number. I Need to include <cstdlib> . c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 2 / 18

Pure and Effectful Functions : I How can we modify Random.cpp to generate random integer numbers between a specified range? Say, between 1 and some value n ? I How can we modify it to generate floating point random numbers in the range [0,1] ? I http://www.cplusplus.com is a reasonable reference. See also http://www.cppreference.com/ . c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 3 / 18

Pure and Effectful Functions : Exercise 5.1 Modify your square root program to assign a value to guess randomly. What effect does this have on the behavior of your program? c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 3 / 18

Pure and Effectful Functions : Pure and impure functions I Most functions are pure functions . I A pure function always returns the same result when given the same input and have now effect on program variables. (Except when the result of the function call is assigned to a variable.) I For example, cos and pow are pure functions. I Both srand and rand are not pure, or impure .
