Hello experts.
I would like to know how I can generate random numbers in the interval between 1 and 100. I don't want 0 to be included.
I tried using rand() with time(0) and then doing the %100. But with this process the 0 is included.
Any way so that the 0 is not included?

If you want a random number between 1 and 100 (including 1 and 100) try using rand() with time(0) and then %100 (gets a random between 0 and 99) and then + 1 (gets a random between 1 and 100).
