Generate a random integer number within a supplied range Math unit
 function RandomRange ( const RangeFrom, RangeTo : Integer ) : Integer;
The RandomRange function generates a random Integer number within the range RangeFrom to RangeTo inclusively. *
This provides a more convenient version of the System unit Random function.
Both use a pseudo random number sequence of 232 values. Each time you run your program, the values generated will be the same, unless you reposition the generator to a different part of the sequence using the Randomize or RandSeed functions.
