mersenne_twister::seed

Seeds the engine.

template<class Gen>
   void seed(Gen& gen)
void seed(unsigned long x0 = default_seed);

Gen

The type of the seed generator.

gen

The seed generator.

x0

The seed value.

Precondition: 0 < x0

The first seed function generates N values from the values of type unsigned long returned by successive invocations of gen and then twists the resulting large integer value. Each value is gen() % 2W.

The second seed function sets the oldest historical value h[0] to x0 mod 2W, then iteratively sets each successive historical value h[i] to (i + 1812433253 * (h[i - 1] >> (W - 2))) mod 2W, for i ranging from 1 to N - 1.
