Can someone point me to one, because our high-school library is way too old. And it wont work with Dev-C++(we using in it in CS class). Thank you.

>> srand((unsigned) time(&t));
you don't need the argument to time()

srand((unsigned) time(NULL));

>>#if defined(_MSC_VER)
delete the above line and the corresponding #endif. time functions and rand functions are both standard c/c++ library functions that are supported by most c or c++ compilers.

perfect. thnx! works like swiss watch
