#329368 Javascript: Prime or not

Posted by reachpradeep on 03 March 2007 - 08:31 AM

This script is a slightly modified version of "Unique Random Numbers". In this script it becomes easier to implement more than one instances of "Picking Unique Random Numbers".

This JavaScript picks up a number of unique random elements from an array.
For example; if you have an array myArray consisting of 10 elements and want to pick 5 unique random elements. Suppose initially myArray[3] is picked randomly, then myArray[3] should not be picked again.
