Assuming you want to print 50 uniform random integers between 0 and 100:
for i=1,50 do
print(math.floor(math.random()*100))
end

But I try to use math.randomseed. The first tesst is:
print(math.randomseed(100))
print(math.randomseed(0, 100))
Despite no errors, I dindn't get anything. So I ask: how to obtain 50
different integers each time I call the randoms functions?
