    [RESOLVED] Creating a random number generator program help

    I'm trying to create a program that creates random numbers. I looked through some examples and this is what I came up with. The time identifier seems to be undefined yet I see no reason it is undefined. please help!

    Code:
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    {
    	//Re-seed the random-number generator
    	time_t now;
    	time(&now);
    	srand(now);
    	rand();
    	//Print out a list of random numbers
    	for (int i=0;i<5;i++)
    	{
    		cout << rand() % 100 << endl;
    	}
    	system("pause");
    		return 0;
    }
    here's my error code..

    Maybe you should include time.h?
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.
