I wanted to have a quick an easy way to get a random name, from say a list of D&D monsters. But I wanted the script to be accessible from anywhere on the network. So I wrote this simple PHP script and put it on a web server. create a new php file. paste this array into the file, inside the usual php tags.
$filename = "names.txt"; $names = file($filename, FILE_IGNORE_NEW_LINES); $num = random_int(0,303); print ($names[$num]);create another file, called names.txt that contains the list of monster names. Change the 303 to the number of items in your list, minus 1 see demo HERE
