Description: Returns a random integer between
lower and up to but not including
The limits must be integer values and the resulting numbers are based on the entropy of the md5 algorithm.
upper limit is excluded from the range. Thus
will return 100 possible values, not 101.
The function will be re-evaluated on each pass if it is not restricted with a context class expression as shown in the example.
NOTE: The randomness produced by randomint is not safe for cryptographic usage.
