Syntax

count($array, $mode );

Definition and Usage

Count elements in an array, or properties in an object.

If the optional mode parameter is set to COUNT_RECURSIVE (or 1), count() will recursively count the array. This is particularly useful for counting all the elements of a multidimensional array. The default value for mode is 0. count() does not detect infinite recursion.

Paramters

ParameterDescription

modeOptional. Specifies the mode of the function.

Return Value

Example

Try out following example:

<?php
$a[0] = 1;
$a[1] = 3;
$a[2] = 5;
$result = count($a);
print($result);
?> 

This will produce following result:
