void discard( unsigned long long z ); | (since C++11) |

Advances the internal state by `z`

times. Equivalent to calling `operator()`

`z`

times and discarding the result.

z | - | integer value specifying the number of times to advance the state by |

(none).

For some engines, "fast jump" algorithms are known, which advance the state by many steps (order of millions) without calculating intermediate state transitions, although not necessarily in constant time.

(C++11) | advances the engine's state and returns the generated value (public member function) |
