#' Generator function for random V-polytopes
#' 
#' This function generates a \eqn{d}-dimensional polytope in V-representation with \eqn{m} vertices. We pick \eqn{m} random points from the boundary of the \eqn{d}-dimensional unit hypersphere as vertices.
#' 
#' @param dimension The dimension of the convex polytope.
#' @param nvertices The number of the vertices.
#' @param generator A list that could contain two elements.
#' \itemize{
#' \item{body }{ the body that the generator samples uniformly the vertices from: (i) 'cube' or (ii) 'sphere', the default value is 'sphere'.}
#' \item{seed }{ Optional. A fixed seed for the number generator.}
#' }
#' 
#' @return A polytope class representing a V-polytope.
#' @examples 
#' # generate a 10-dimensional polytope defined as the convex hull of 25 random vertices
#' P = gen_rand_vpoly(10, 25)
#' @export
