Function to generate a sequence of states from homogeneous Markov chains.
Description
Provided any markovchain
object, it returns a sequence of
states coming from the underlying stationary distribution.
Usage
1 2  markovchainSequence(n, markovchain, t0 = sample(markovchain@states, 1),
include.t0 = FALSE, useRCpp = TRUE)

Arguments
n 
Sample size 
markovchain 

t0 
The initial state 
include.t0 
Specify if the initial state shall be used 
useRCpp 
Boolean. Should RCpp fast implementation being used? Default is yes. 
Details
A sequence of size n is sampled.
Value
A Character Vector
