Subject: [Boost-users] [random]how to initialise a rng for use in the initialiser list?

sorry for the many questions to this list right now, I'm just beginning
to use boost. This time I have some issues regarding the boost.random
I have used it just fine for many examples but there's one tricky bit
that I was wondering whether anyone of you knows a solution for.
I use a class which keeps the random number generator around as a member
variable; this class also has a const matrix. Now in the constructor of
the class I do something like:
my_class::my_class(args) : rng(seed), matrix(initialise()), ...
Of course, I want to use the rng to initialise the matrix and that's
where things fail. I guess, I could use a different rng just to fill the
matrix, or make it non-const and fill it in the constructor body. But
does anyone know a neat trick to do this in the way proposed?
Thank you for any answers,
