Need help coding some PHP.
I need a script that can do a random number 1-3 and based on 1-3 given 3 different echo statements. Can anyone help me? I can't figure out how to get 1-3 as just the random thing gives me an answer like 1.2342342351616 lol and I can't figure out how to extrapolate from there.

Also I have to make sure that each one is displayed, 1-3.

Re: Need help coding some PHP.
I'm much more of a ruby guy, but from what I remember of php you could use something like the following:

count = 0

while (count <= 3)
{
echo rand(1, 3) #may be rand(0,3) can't remember exactly
count++
}

I could definitely be wrong with this, may be reading the question wrong.

$array = array(
1 => 1,
2 => 2,
3 => 3,
);

shuffle ($array);
foreach($array as $value){
echo $value;
}

Epic. Much love. :)

Working on doing some mind reading as well as at the same time manipulating results on a random number generator. Going to see what I can do. :)

Re: Need help coding some PHP.
Could also use the rand() function. Try this it will pick a number randomly between the first and second parameter 1 and 3

$x = rand(1,3);

if ($x == 1)
{
echo "suck ma ding dong";
}

if ($x == 2)
{
echo "glp has hot babes";
}

if ($x == 3)
{
echo "niburu is fake";
}
