Use a string var content "abcdef......" and read var with random value from 1 to var len.

Without much thinking about it I did so.
Definitely room for improvement but it works.

I did not actually download the code. Only looked at the screen capture...
But I think there might be a problem with your randomness.

Random generator should generate a number from 0-26
Rounding will sometimes output the number 0
Truncating will do the same thing.
But if you make the range 25, then truncate the random number, then add 1 - you should have the correct range.

Unless of course index 1 of an array is 0 and not 1... I really am not sure having not used arrays much.
Even if index 1 is actually 0, then there is still a problem with the randomness because this would mean that index 0 is half as likely to show up as all the others and 26 should not exist.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Hi,

when using random always use floor or ceil instead of round.
