result_type min() const;

Parameters: This method do not accepts any parameters.

Return Value: This method return the minimum possibly generated value in this uniform_int_distribution.


// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of min() function
#include <iostream>
// for uniform_int_distribution function
#include <random>
using namespace std;
int main()
    int a = 10, b = 100;
    // Initializing of uniform_int_distribution class
    uniform_int_distribution<int> distribution(a, b);
    // Using min()
    cout << "Min value that can be generated "
         << "by this uniform_int_distribution: "
         << distribution.min() << endl;
    return 0;
Min value that can be generated by this uniform_int_distribution: 10
