if my text list look like:
 
textList:= "London" : "Stockholm" : "New York" :"Bagdad"
 
I would then like to be able to use
 
@Random(textList)

Should this function be required - it would be better as one of the custom parameters of @sort?

i.e. @Sort(textList;[Random])

I suppose that this could be useful to Reality TV companies that need to give out results 'in no particular order'. Not that I ever watch them of course :)

what would you use it for?
2) Richard Schwartz3723 (21 Dec 2007)
Ummm... What do you want this to do? Select a random element from the list? Put the list in random order?
3) Paul Davies12361 (23 Dec 2007)
re Richard: good point - I assumed a random order.

To achieve a random element is already possible anyway

textList:= "London" : "Stockholm" : "New York" :"Bagdad";
r := @integer(@random * @elements(textList));
textList[r]

@3: That will only give You ONE of the elements (random) - but as I understand what Patrick is aiming for is to give the WHOLE list in a random order - not only a single element.

I would prefer the keyword to be called [RandomizedOrder] or [RandomOrder] since it better describes what it actually do.
