Well, can you try the below code I am sure you can get what you are looking for.
Here is the C++ code.

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <cstdlib> // for rand() and srand()
#include <ctime>   // for time()

int main() {
    // Initialize the random number generator with the current time
    srand(static_cast<unsigned int>(time(nullptr));

    // Open a file for writing
    std::ofstream outputFile("random_numbers.txt");

    if (!outputFile) {
        std::cerr << "Error opening file for writing." << std::endl;
        return 1;

    // Generate and save 100 random numbers, one per line
    for (int i = 0; i < 100; ++i) {
        int randomNum = rand();
        outputFile << randomNum << std::endl; // Write to file with newline

    // Close the file

    std::cout << "Random numbers have been saved to random_numbers.txt." << std::endl;

    return 0;
