Member functions
seed_seq() noexcept;
(1) (since C++11)
seed_seq( const seed_seq& ) = delete;
(2) (since C++11)
template< class InputIt >
seed_seq( InputIt begin, InputIt end );
(3) (since C++11)
template< class T >
seed_seq( std::initializer_list<T> il );
(4) (since C++11)
1) The default constructor creates a std::seed_seq object with an initial seed sequence of length zero.
2) The copy constructor is deleted: std::seed_seq is not copyable.
3) Constructs a std::seed_seq with the initial seed sequence obtained by iterating over the range [beginend) and copying the values obtained by dereferencing the iterator, modulo 232
(that is, the lower 32 bits are copied).
4) Equivalent to seed_seq(il.begin(), il.end()). This constructor enables list-initialization from the list of seed values. This overload participates in overload resolution only if T is an integer type.


[edit] Parameters

begin, end - the initial seed sequence represented as a pair of input iterators whose std::iterator_traits<>::value_type is an integer type
il - std::initializer_list of objects of integer type, providing the initial seed sequence
Type requirements
InputIt must meet the requirements of LegacyInputIterator.

[edit] Exceptions

3,4) Throws std::bad_alloc on allocation failure.

[edit] Example

#include <iterator>
#include <random>
#include <sstream>
int main()
    std::seed_seq s1; // default-constructible
    std::seed_seq s2{1, 2, 3}; // can use list-initialization
    std::seed_seq s3 = {-1, 0, 1}; // another form of list-initialization
    int a[10] = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10};
    std::seed_seq s4(a, a + 10); // can use iterators
    std::istringstream buf("1 2 3 4 5"); 
    std::istream_iterator<int> beg(buf), end;
    std::seed_seq s5(beg, end); // even stream input iterators
