    What exactly is "doesn't work"?

    First off, "randomize" is compiler specific (read: Borland).
    Second, "randomize" is basicly the same thing as "srand", and as such, should only be called once per program execution.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    well, first you have to srand(time(NULL)) so you get a new number every time and in vc++

    its #include <stdlib.h>

    rand()%number;

    which gives you a random number from 0-number

    randomize() has a very wide range in usage so "doesn't work" won't really mean anything.

    Care to share some code?
