        std::cout << "file name: " << random_file_name() << '\n' ;
}

No it does not; it prints the generated file names to stdout.
To write them to a file, use an output file stream std::ofstream instead of std::cout.

There is an edit in the code posted earlier; it now generates file names with image numbers 1 to 100.
you have done a great help. thank you very much
@JLBorges can you help me to edit your code to give an txt file output.
