Default UDF and random functions

Can anybody tell us why Fluent does not interpret UDF with random functions calls (srand, rand)? The error message says that srand and rand are "undeclared variables"... thanks gino

----------------------------------- #include "udf.h" #define RAND_MAX 32767

DEFINE_PROFILE(temp_face,t,i) { real x[ND_ND]; face_t f;

float ran ;

srand( (unsigned) time (NULL) );



ran = rand()/float(RAND_MAX) ;


F_PROFILE(f,t,i) = 310.+2.*(ran-0.5);

} end_f_loop(f,t) void srand( unsigned int seed ); } -------------------------------------
