Documented in random.intervals

#' Random intervals
#'
#' The function generates \code{M} intervals, whose endpoints are 
#' are drawn uniformly without replacements from \code{1},\code{2},..., \code{n}. This routine can be
#' used inside \code{\link{wbs}} function and is typically not called directly by the user.
#' @param n a number of endpoints to choose from
#' @param M a number of intervals to generate
#' @return a \code{M} by 2 matrix with start (first column) and end (second column) points of an interval in each row
#' @examples
#' random.intervals(10,100)
#' @export random.intervals
#' @seealso \code{\link{fixed.intervals}} \code{\link{wbs}}
