How to generate a random number in C

0 votes

I'm attempting to develop a dice game, and I need random numbers to represent the sides of the die. 

I can make a number between 1 and 6). 

Using

#include <cstdlib> 
#include <ctime> 
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main() 
{ 
    srand((unsigned)time(0)); 
    int i;
    i = (rand()%6)+1; 
    cout << i << "\n"; 
}

doesn't function very well since when I run the programme a few times, I receive the following output:

6
1
1
1
1
1
2
2
2
2
5
2

So I'd need a command that generates a distinct random number each time, rather than the same one five times in a row. 

Is this something that can be done with a command?
