// Random number generation demo program #include <iostream> // for cin, cout, endl #include <cstdlib> // for random number generator #include <ctime> // for time method so we can seed the generator using namespace std; // needed if we use "iostream" instead of "iostream.h" // otherwise, we'd need "std::" in front of cin, cout, endl double NextRandNum() // PRE: random number generator has been initialized with a call to srand() // POST: FCTVAL == next random number >= 0 and < 1 { return double(rand()%32768)/32768; // generate "random" number } int main() { double rand_double; // our random number between 0 and 1 // Generate a random number without restrictions srand( (unsigned) time(0) );
