Ability to easily shuffle an array

Post by andrewbarbour » Sun Apr 10, 2016 11:59 pm

I had posted a question in another one of the groups - and got a fantastic answer

I have a list of individuals that I need to randomize the order of...
Bob,Mary,Bill,Thomas,Jack,Jimbo

All I need to do is put them in random order in a new string.
I thought this would be easy.... the code I have found in the forums is a little difficult to follow. Any ideas?
As outlined in my post - a great feature would be the ability to shuffle the array (with an option for the feature of allowing or not allowing the array elements to stay in the same position)

Hope this gets some traction. Thanks
