.. function:: randint(low, high=None, size=None)
Return random integers from low (inclusive) to high (exclusive).
Return random integers from the “discrete uniform” distribution of the specified dtype in the “half-open”
interval [low, high). If high is None (the default), then results are from [0, low).
:param low: (*int*) Lowest (signed) integer to be drawn from the distribution (unless high=None, in which
case this parameter is one above the highest such integer).
:param high: (*int*) If provided, one above the largest (signed) integer to be drawn from the distribution
(see above for behavior if high=None).
:param size: (*int or tuple*) Output shape. If the given shape is, e.g., (m, n, k), then m * n * k samples
are drawn. Default is None, in which case a single value is returned.
:returns: (*int or array*) Random integer array.
Examples::
>>> random.randint(2, size=10)
array([0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0])
