Randomizing a PHP Array

I wrote this before it occurred to me to see if MariaDB could randomize the output. It can, with ORDER BY RAND();.

PHP has a shuffle function that can randomize one array, but I have a bunch that need to have the same random order.


// Create an array of numbers
$randomArray = range(0,$numWords-1);
shuffle($randomArray); // Create empty target arrays$word = []; $sounds = [];$phrase = []; $sentence = []; for ($i = 0; $i <$numWords; $i++ ) { // Use the numbers in the random array to swap elements.$random = $randomArray[$i];
$word[$i] = $word_S[$random];
$sounds[$i] = $sounds_S[$random];
$phrase[$i] = $phrase_S[$random];
$sentence[$i] = $sentence_S[$random];
}
