    Two Simultaneous rand() functions with different seed values for srand()

    Hi All,

    How can I use rand() for two different srand() seed values simultaneously??

    Is there anyway to make two exclusive srand() seeds simultaneous??

    Thanks In Advance.

    This is not possible with srand and rand. What you can do is to use the random number facilities introduced in C++11, or use some other PRNG implementation that allows you to have multiple independent sequences.
