Not PHP, but it's a script. Well, _javascript at least. Just a simple function of sorts. Maybe not pro either (I wouldn't be surprised if it's considered clumsy coding), but I'm guessing it has its uses...

function arrayShuffler(inputArray) [
seedArray = new Array();
targetArray = new Array();
tempArray = new Array();
counter = 0
for (i=0; i 0) [
randNum = parseInt(Math.random() * sourceArray.length);
targetArray[ counter] = seedArray[ randNum];
tempArray[ counter] = inputArray[ targetArray[ counter]];
return tempArray;

Then to use it later on...

array_toBeShuffled = arrayShuffler(array_toBeShuffled);

Hopefully I didn't break it by changing it for this post. (Some variable names changed around for clarity and adding a space to the square brackets so they don't parse as forum code.) If you couldn't figure it out, it randomizes the order of any array. I'm sure a list of non-repeating randomized values has some uses. (Card games, quiz questions, other more creative things, etc.)

As for a method to the madness? I find using a loop to populate a seed array and then randomly taking parts of the seed array away to generate another array which in turn is used to reorder the array put into the function is a lot faster than performing comparison checks to see that a random value doesn't repeat. (The list of values to randomly choose from gets shorter each time it repeats. As where checking the whole thing would keep bumping into the same values over and over again if you didn't want a repeat.) I don't do much programming, so it took me a while to figure that one out.

Maybe its been said here--this is an old thread... Learning DW is great, but knowing how to manually code is paramount IMHO. Check w3schools, even after 10+ years working as a designer/developer I still visit them when I have those brain blocks
