PHP | shuffle() Function

PHP shuffle() Function


Hello dear readers! welcome back to another edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the PHP shuffle() Function.

The PHP built-in shuffle() function shuffles (randomizes the order of elements in) an array.

This function assigns new keys for the elements in the array. It will remove any existing keys you may have already assigned, instead of just reordering the keys.

Syntax

Following below is the syntax to use this function -

shuffle( $array  );


Parameter Details

Sr.NoParameter & Description
1

array(Required)

It specifies an array.


Return Value

This PHP function returns TRUE on success, or FALSE on failure.

Example

Try out the below example -

<?php
   $input = array("d"=>"lemon", "a"=>"orange", "b"=>"banana" );
   shuffle($input);
   print_r($input);
?> 

Output

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

Array ( [0] => banana [1] => orange [2] => lemon )
