The % is the "remainder" operator.  You can adjust the number of digits you get by adjusting the 1000000000 number.

thank you expert,

$number=rand()%1000000000;
it generates a random 5 digit number; but every time one refreshes the browser..

what I meant is: I need to create an array of random numbers
using rand(8,20)

see what I mean?

thanks,
regards

Glad you got what you needed ... it wasn't exactly clear from

   "...script to generate 10 random numbers" and
   "...script that randomly generates 10 digit numbers"

which it was that you actually needed, but creating an array of 10 numbers is pretty easy, so I figured you needed the other.
