(implicitly declared)

Constructs the pseudo-random number engine.

1) Default constructor. Seeds the engine with default_seed.

The overload (3) only participates in overload resolution if Sseq qualifies as a SeedSequence. In particular, it is excluded from the set of candidate functions if Sseq is convertible to result_type.


value - seed value to use in the initialization of the internal state
s - seed sequence to use in the initialization of the internal state
