Generate code PHP

Hello Guys

I'd like a function where I could generate key code like this: atl1457b01, in randon way.


Someone has a function that can do that?

Thanks a lot

What is the application - is it for security reasons

What are the requirements for characters / min / max length?

You can use something like this:
function generate_random_code()
	$letters = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz';
	$numbers = '0123456789';
	$code = '';
	for ( $i = 0; $i < 3; $i++ )
		$code .= $letters[ rand( 0, strlen($letters) - 1 ) ];
	for ( $i = 0; $i < 4; $i++ )
		$code .= $numbers[ rand( 0, strlen($numbers) - 1 ) ];
	$code .= $letters[ rand( 0, strlen($letters) - 1 ) ];
	for ( $i = 0; $i < 2; $i++ )
		$code .= $numbers[ rand( 0, strlen($numbers) - 1 ) ];
	return $code;
echo generate_random_code();
