1) Serializes the internal state of the pseudo-random number engine adaptor as a sequence of decimal numbers separated by one or more spaces, and inserts it to the stream
ost. The fill character and the formatting flags of the stream are ignored and unaffected.
2) Restores the internal state of the pseudo-random number engine adaptor
e from the serialized representation, which was created by an earlier call to
operator<< using a stream with the same imbued locale and the same
Traits. If the input cannot be deserialized,
e is left unchanged and
failbit is raised on
These function templates are not visible to ordinary unqualified or qualified lookup, and can only be found by argument-dependent lookup when
std::discard_block_engine<Engine,p,r> is an associated class of the arguments.
If a textual representation is written using os << x and that representation is restored into the same or a different object
y of the same type using is >> y, then x==y.
