Hi friends: I need to generate a random number between 0 and 100000. I'm using the following formula: srand((unsigned)(double)time(NULL)); random_number = (unsigned int) ((double) rand() / (double) RAND_MAX * 100000); However, the numbers that I obtain don't seem to be very aleatory that say; please, could someone tell me what am I doing bad? Thanks in advance Antonio
