### how to generate random point

Dear community,

I' have written this function to generate random value at each iteration in a for loop, however, it seems that it doesn't do the expected job

  Point initPt(int nx0, int ny0, int nx1, int ny1){
RNG rng;
Point pt;
double D = rng.uniform((double) nx0, (double) nx1);
pt.x = round(D);

D = rng.uniform((double) ny0, (double) ny1);
pt.y = round(D);

return pt;
}


I wrote this demo loop to see the results

    for (int i=0; i<n ; i++){
Point pt = initPopulation(nx0, ny0, nx1, ny1);
nest.at<int>(i,1) = pt.x;
nest.at<int>(i,2) = pt.y;
cout << pt <<endl;
}


I got, unfortunately, this

   [127, 110]
[127, 110]
[127, 110]
[127, 110]
[127, 110]
[127, 110]
[127, 110]
...


I am glad to any help
