exponential_distribution::exponential_distribution

Constructs the distribution.

exponential_distribution(const result_type& lambda0 = result_type(1.0));
explicit exponential_distribution(const param_type& par0);

lambda0

The lambda distribution parameter.

par0

The parameter package used to construct the distribution.

Precondition: 0.0 <= lambda0

The first constructor constructs an object whose stored value stored_lambda holds the value lambda0.

The second constructor constructs an object whose stored parameters are initialized from par0.
