Arrays

The functions in this section operate on arrays. Some of them sort the arrays; some of them help you find and retrieve values from arrays. Chapter 5, "Arrays," discusses arrays in depth.

The array function takes a list of values separated by commas and returns an array. This is especially useful for creating one-off arrays to be passed to functions. Elements will be added to the array as if you used empty square brackets, which means they are numbered consecutively starting at zero. You may use the => operator to specify index values.

<?
        //create an array
        $myArray = array(
                "Name"=>"Leon Atkinson",
                "Profession"=>array("Programmer", "Author"),
                "Residence"=>"Martinez, California"
                );
?>

array array_count_values(array data) ...
