What is the function to randomize the items of a list in-place?

Please answer

2mos ago

Well, you could do it in a number of ways. But shuffle function is the right and easiest way to do it. PHP: shuffle - Manual

Here's an example -

//------------------ 
$standard_array = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7];

shuffle($standard_array); 

print_r($standard_array);

// Outputs: [1,3,2,7,5,6,4];
//------------------

The shuffle function will pick the elements of an array and then randomize them in place. 

Does that answer your question?
