in reply to Random array sorting

See merlyn's reply below.

sub shuffle { my @shuffled; push @shuffed, splice(@_, rand(@_), 1) while @_; return @shuffled; } print shuffle @array;

The splice pulls a random element out of the array, which is pushed onto the new array. Repeat while there are still elements in the list.

Makeshifts last the longest.

[choroba]: How is Bembel different from Krug?
[hippo]: karlgoethebier, Ich habe kein Deutsch.
[Corion]: choroba: A Bembel is a traditional pottery ware, which is only(!) used for serving Cider (well, Apfelwein)
[shmem]: choroba: it's hessisch
[Corion]: Not every Krug is a Bembel!
[karlgoethebier]: there is just the mug: 🍺
[Corion]: A Bembel must look like this
[karlgoethebier]: https://de. wikipedia.org/ wiki/Bembel#/ media/File: Bembel_Zum_blauen_ Bock_1978.jpg
[choroba]: as my friend says, Ich stehe Deutsche ver nicht aber klein ;-)
[Corion]: Krug is generic pottery ware for pouring beverages, but a Bembel is painted with that blue paint and contains only (!) Apfelwein
