But if array_rand() truly pulls out random keys, how do you guarantee that you are not randomly pulling out the same key as you iterate through the array?
Perhaps you could set the number of keys to return, to the size of the array, and somehow, magically, all the keys would be included in the returned array of keys. i.e. array_rand ( array , array_size) I have no idea what this would produce... -David On Tuesday, September 10, 2002, at 10:33 AM, Mike At Spy wrote: > > You could use array_rand() to take stuff out of the array at random and > then > stuff it all back into another array. > > -Mike > > > >> -----Original Message----- >> From: ROBERT MCPEAK [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] >> Sent: Tuesday, September 10, 2002 10:22 AM >> To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] >> Subject: [PHP] random array sort >> >> >> Could someone show me a quick and simple way to randomly sort array >> elements?
