The mt_rand() function returns a random integer using the Mersenne Twister algorithm.
If this function is called without parameters, it returns a pseudo-random value between 0 and RAND_MAX.
If you want a random number between 10 and 100 (inclusive), use mt_rand (10,100).
|min,max||Optional. Specifies the range the random number should lie within|
Tip: This function produces a better random value four times faster than rand()!
Note: In PHP 4.2.0 and later, there is no need to seed the random generator with mt_srand(). This is done automatically.
In this example we will return some random numbers:
