    rotate the contents of the array and thn printit out…


    you my nt hard code the array like this..

    $data=('a','b'..so on)

    u hve to build the array in a for()loop ..use this hint to help you get the data setup


    the variable $letter now has the value 'a',the no 98 would create a'b',the no 99 would create 'c' and so on thr alphabet.use this technique ,substituting a variable for the no 98 to create the array.


    pritn the data in the array so it look:


    yr o/p must go letter follewed by a space folewed by the next letter.no commaa after the last letter.


    prompt the user for an integer greater than zero. use tht number to rotate the contents of the array. if the user enterd 1 thn letter 'a' would go whr the 'z' use to be nd everything will suffle to the left posittion

    step 4:

    ptint the final result bk to screen.u sld ablt to use the exact same code u wrote in step 2



    hw many position would like to shuffle the array?5
