Defined in header <random>  

template< class IntType = int > class uniform_int_distribution;  (since C++11) 
Produces random integer values i, uniformly distributed on the closed interval [a, b]
, that is, distributed according to the discrete probability function P(ia,b) =
1 
b − a + 1 
std::uniform_int_distribution
satisfies all requirements of RandomNumberDistribution.
IntType    The result type generated by the generator. The effect is undefined if this is not one of short , int , long , long long , unsigned short , unsigned int , unsigned long , or unsigned long long . 
Member type  Definition 

result_type  IntType 
param_type  the type of the parameter set, see RandomNumberDistribution. 
constructs new distribution (public member function) 

resets the internal state of the distribution (public member function) 

Generation 

generates the next random number in the distribution (public member function) 

Characteristics 

returns the distribution parameters (public member function) 

gets or sets the distribution parameter object (public member function) 

returns the minimum potentially generated value (public member function) 

returns the maximum potentially generated value (public member function) 
compares two distribution objects (function) 

performs stream input and output on pseudorandom number distribution (function template) 
This program simulates throwing 6sided dice.
#include <random> #include <iostream> int main() { std::random_device rd; //Will be used to obtain a seed for the random number engine std::mt19937 gen(rd()); //Standard mersenne_twister_engine seeded with rd() std::uniform_int_distribution<> dis(1, 6); for (int n=0; n<10; ++n) //Use dis to transform the random unsigned int generated by gen into an int in [1, 6] std::cout << dis(gen) << ' '; std::cout << '\n'; }
Possible output:
1 1 6 5 2 2 5 5 6 2
