/*
 Function to create an array of unique random numbers or letters
 Receives 3 arguments:
   $nri = number of items in array
   $min = the lowest number, or letter
   $max = the highest number, or letter
*/
function randomNrLtArray($nri, $min, $max) {
  // From: http://coursesweb.net/php-mysql/
  // creates an array with values from $min to $max
  $arr = range($min, $max);

  // randomizes the order of the elements in $arr, extracts and keeps the first $nri items
  shuffle($arr);
  $arr = array_slice($arr, 0, $nri);

  return $arr;      // returnns the array
}
- Example: gets an array with 5 random numbers from 1 to 50, and another array with 4 random letters from "A" to "M".

Results:
array (0 => 6, 1 => 23, 2 => 42, 3 => 47, 4 => 8)
