# Function to generate a sequence of random CTMC transitions.

### Description

The function generates random CTMC transitions as per the provided generator matrix.

### Usage

1 |

### Arguments

`n` |
The number of samples to generate. |

`ctmc` |
The CTMC S4 object. |

`initDist` |
The initial distribution of states. |

`T` |
The time up to which the simulation runs (all transitions after time T are not returned). |

`include.T0` |
Flag to determine if start state is to be included. |

`out.type` |
"list" or "df" |

### Details

In order to use the T0 argument, set n to Inf.

### Value

Based on out.type, a list or a data frame is returned. The returned list has two elements - a character vector (states) and a numeric vector (indicating time of transitions). The data frame is similarly structured.
