    Exclamation Random Word generator to create sentance

    I am having a hard time finding some code to make a random word generator. I want the user to be able to click a button, and have a randomly generated sentance of the words (3 or more), with mabye the possibility to choose how many words the sentance has.

    =Can anyone help me out?

    I am trying to use this wordlist.

    Re: Random Word generator to create sentance

    What language are you using?

    You could have a text file containing the words (so you can change the words without recompiling) which is read into a container such as a vector (c++) and then have a loop generating a random number between 0 and the number of the words read less one that indexes into the container to obtain the random word. The loop would control how many words are generated for the sentence. Using just these words won't generate a 'proper' sentence though.

All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality.
