PHP Array Functions

The array functions allow you to manipulate and access arrays. In PHP , the array functions are the part of the PHP core. There is no installation needed to use these functions.

Function Description
array() Create an array

array_change_key_case() Changes the case of all keys in an array.
array_chunk() Split an array into chunks of arrays
array_column() Return the values from a single column in the input array
array_combine() Creates an array by using one array for keys and another for its values
array_count_values() Counts all the values of an array
array_diff() Compare arrays values, and returns the differences
array_diff_assoc() Compare arrays keys and values, and returns the differences
array_diff_key() Compare arrays keys, and returns the differences
array_diff_uassoc() Compare arrays keys and values, using a user-defined key comparison function, and returns the differences
array_diff_ukey() Compare array keys, using a user-defined key comparison function, and returns the differences
array_fill() Fill an array with values
array_fill_keys() Fill an array with values, specifying keys
array_filter() Filters elements of an array using a user-defined function

array_keys() Return all the keys or a subset of the keys of an array
array_key_exists() Checks if the specified key exists in the array
array_map() Sends the elements of the given arrays to a user-defined function, which may use it to returns new values

array_push() Inserts one or more elements to the end of an array
array_rand() Returns one or more random keys from an array
array_reduce() Reduce the array to a single value by using a user-defined callback function
array_replace() Replaces the values of the first array with the values from following arrays
array_replace_recursive() Replaces the values of the first array with the values from following arrays recursively
array_reverse() Return an array with elements in reverse order
array_search() Searches an array for a given value and returns the corresponding key if successful
array_shift() Removes the first element from an array, and returns the value of the removed element
array_slice() Extract a slice from an array
array_splice() Remove a portion of the array and replace it with something else
array_sum() Calculate the sum of values in an array
array_udiff() Compares only arrays values by using a user-defined comparison callback function, and returns the differences
array_udiff_assoc() Compares arrays values by using a user-defined comparison callback function, with additional keys comparison using an internal (or built-in) function, and returns the differences
array_udiff_uassoc() Compares arrays keys and values by using two separate user-defined comparison callback functions, and returns the differences
array_uintersect() Compares only arrays values by using a user-defined comparison callback function, and returns the matches
array_uintersect_assoc() Compares arrays values by using a user-defined comparison callback function, while uses an internal (or built-in) function for comparing the key, and returns the matches
array_uintersect_uassoc() Compares arrays keys and values by using two separate user-defined comparison callback functions, and returns the matches
array_unique() Removes duplicate values from an array
array_unshift() Adds one or more elements to the beginning of an array
array_values() Return all the values of an array
array_walk() Applies a user-defined function to each element of an array
