randread

# $EPIC: randread.txt,v 1.3 2007/03/02 02:32:04 jnelson Exp $

Synopsis:

$randread(<filename>)

Technical:

The <filename> argument is a dword which is different from most function arguments.

This function reads a random line from the specified <filename>.

Practical:

This function has many novelty uses: random messages for /quit, /kick, /part, or /topic.

Returns:

The empty string is returned on error (the file does not exist, the file is empty, or the file cannot be read). Otherwise, a random line from the file is returned.
