        A function that converts an integer between 0 and 61 into an alphanumberic character.  Ranges from 0-9, A-Z, a-z.  Very handy for generating random strings and stuff like that.  

function map_char($num) { 
   $int = $num; $int+=48;
   ($int > 57) ? $int += 7 : null;
   ($int > 90) ? $int += 6 : null;
   return chr($int);
}
