wee question (to replace the pin-drop jokes :-) ) :
program in C under Unix.
Is there any way to get the time in tenth or hundredth of seconds ?
Or to phrase it differently : i need a random number generator that won't
give the same sequence of numbers every time that the seed is reinitialised
in the same second (by 2 different users)
and then rand()
doesn't work.
Or a different kind of seed ?  Suggestions are welcome (should be readily
available in your standard Unix system)
