Returns the minimum value potentially returned by member operator(), which is the same as its base engine's minimum value.
result_type is a member type, defined as an alias of the type of the numbers generated by the base engine.
// discard_block_engine::min and max
int main ()
unsigned seed = std::chrono::system_clock::now().time_since_epoch().count();
// ranlux24 is a standard instantitation of discard_block_engine:
std::ranlux24 generator (seed);
std::cout << generator() << " is a random number between ";
std::cout << generator.min() << " and " << generator.max();
471250 is a random number between 0 and 16777215
