SortRandom


Sorts a given table into a random order.

function SortRandom(input)
assert(type(input) == 'table', ('SortRandom must receive a table. Received %s instead.'):format(type(input)))
math.randomseed(tonumber(tostring(os.time()):reverse():sub(1,6)))
local temp, newinput = {}, {}
for _, v in pairs(input) do
table.insert(newinput, v)
end
while #newinput > 0 do
table.insert(temp, table.remove(newinput, math.random(1, #newinput)))
end
return temp
end

Note: Unlike table.sort this function does not directly manipulate the original table. The sorted table is returned as a result of the function.
