    resolved [RESOLVED] preventing duplicates in an array.

    first, here is the code.

    PHP Code:
    $array count($_POST[betNum]);
    $contents implode(", "$_POST[betNum]);
    echo (
    "You chose $array picks. Double check them now...$contents<br><br>");

    $i 0;

    while (
    $i != $_POST[howMany]) {

    $randSet array_rand(array_flip($_POST[betNum]), 10);

    $randSet implode(", "$randSet);

    echo(
    "$randSet<br><br>");

    $i++;



    possible solutions...

    because this is for personal use, i could simply sort the results with the dups staying on top, so when i see a duplicate, i simply press refresh.

    or..

    if the value already exists in the array, $randSet, dont add it, subtract from $i and have it cycle through until $howMany has been reached.


    all of your ideas and help will be greatly appreciated!
