Truncated
Poisson Distribution |

**DESCRIPTION**- Random number generation for the truncated Poisson distribution.
**USAGE**`rtrunpois(n, lambda = stop("no lambda arg"), origin=0)`

**REQUIRED ARGUMENTS**`n`sample size. If length(n) is larger than 1, then length(n) random values are returned. `lambda`vector of (positive) means. This is replicated to be the same length as the number of deviates generated. **OPTIONAL ARGUMENTS**`origin`Non-negative integer giving the origin of the distribution. **VALUE**- Vector of length
`n`

of random deviates from the Poisson distribution with mean lambda truncated to have minimum value`origin`

. **SIDE EFFECTS**- Causes creation of the dataset .Random.seed if it does not already exist, otherwise its value is updated.
**EXAMPLES**`> rtrunpois(10,5,4)``[1] 7 6 6 6 5 4 5 7 9 4`
