Random Number Generator

Question:
Is there a way to capture the last value (digit) of the system clock number and use that to generate a random number? Or look at system clock–find last digit (in seconds)–make my variable equal to that digit?

Answer:
Use the time() function to get the system time. This result modulo 10 returns the last digit of the time value which you can use as a seed for generating random numbers:

#include int main(){time_t t = time(0); // current system timeint seed = t%10; // get last digit// .. use seed}
