Description

This script will pick from a list of quotes that you provide and display one randomly on the page.

Random Quote in PHP

Put this code in a file to get a random quote. The quotes file must be named quotes.txt and stored in the same directory as the random quote file.
<?
   $quoteFile = "quotes.txt";  //File holding qoutes

   $fp = fopen($quoteFile, "r");   //Opens file for read
   $content = fread($fp, filesize($quoteFile));
   $quotes = explode("\n",$content);   //Put quotes into array
   fclose($fp);   //Close the file

   srand((double)microtime()*1000000);  // randomize
   $index = (rand(1, sizeof($quotes)) - 1); //Pick random qoute

   echo $quotes[$index]; //Print quote to screen
?>

Random Quote in ASP

Just include the following code to print random text to the screen.
<%
Dim quotes(3), iNumber, iRandom     'Dim an array of 3 variables
quotes(0) = "First quote"
quotes(1) = "Second quote"
quotes(2) = "Third quote"

iRandom = ubound(quotes)
randomize                     'call random function
iNumber = Int((iRandom)* Rnd)      'get random quote number
Response.Write(arrQuote(iNumber))   'write output to screen
%>
