Syntax

array(key1 => value1, key2 => value2...)

Definition and Usage

Returns an array of the parameters. The parameters can be given an index with the => operator

Parameters

Parameter Description
key Optional. Specifies the key, of type numeric or string. If not set, an integer key is generated, starting at 0
value Required. Specifies the value

Return Values

Returns an array of the parameters.

Example

Try out following example

<?php
   $a=array("a"=>"Dog", "b"=>"Cat", "c"=>"Horse");
   print_r($a);
?> 

This will produce following result −

Array ( [a] => Dog [b] => Cat [c] => Horse )

The following example demonstrates how to create a two-dimensional array, how to specify keys for associative arrays, and how to skip-and-continue numeric indices in normal arrays.

<?php
   $fruits = array (
      "fruits"  => array("a" => "orange", "b" => "banana", "c" => "apple"),
      "numbers" => array(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6),
      "holes" => array("first", 5 => "second", "third")
   );
?>
