NAME

       FBB::IRandStream - Istream producing random numbers

SYNOPSIS

       #include <bobcat/irandstream>
       Linking option: -lbobcat

DESCRIPTION

       FBB::IRandStream  objects  may  be  used to extract random numbers in a given range from a
       stream.

NAMESPACE

       FBB
       All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned  in  this  man-page,  are
       defined in the namespace FBB.

INHERITS FROM

       std::istream,
       FBB::RandBuffer (private)

CONSTRUCTORS

       o      IRandStream(int max):
              This  FBB::IRandStream() constructor initializes the random generator.  The default
              seed (i.e., 1) for the srand(3) function is used, meaning that every new run of the
              program  will generate the same sequence of random values. Another constructor (see
              below) is provided when this is not considered appropriate. Random values between 1
              and max (inclusive) are returned.

       o      IRandStream(int min, int max):
              This  FBB::IRandStream() constructor initializes the random generator.  The default
              seed (i.e., 1) for the srand(3) function is used, meaning that every new run of the
              program  will generate the same sequence of random values. Another constructor (see
              below) is provided when this is not considered appropriate. Random  values  between
              min and max (inclusive) are returned.

       o      IRandStream(int min, int max, int seed):
              This  FBB::IRandStream()  constructor initializes the random generator. The seed is
              used to initialze the random number generator. To start  the  random  generator  at
              some unpredictable point, time(0) could be used.  Random values between min and max
              (inclusive) are returned.

INHERITED MEMBERS

       Since the class uses public derivation from std::istream, all members of this class can be
       used.

EXAMPLE

       #include <iostream>
       #include <bobcat/irandstream>

       using namespace std;
       using namespace FBB;

       int main(int argc, char **argv)
       {
           IRandStream in(1000);

           for (; argc--; )
           {
               size_t random;
               in >> random;
               cout << random << endl;
           }

           return 0;
       }
