Construct binomial distribution
Constructs a binomial_distribution object, adopting the distribution parameters specified either by t and p or by object parm.
- The upper bound of the range ([0,t]) of possible values the distribution can generate.
This represents the number of independent Bernoulli-distributed experiments each generated value is said to simulate.
result_type is a member type that represents the type of the random numbers generated on each call to operator(). It is defined as an alias of the first class template parameter (IntType).
- Probability of success.
This represents the probability of success on each of the independent Bernoulli-distributed experiments each generated value is said to simulate.
This shall be a value between 0.0 and 1.0 (both included).
- An object representing the distribution's parameters, obtained by a call to member function param.
param_type is a member type.
