array -- Create an array


array array(...);

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

Note: array() is a language construct used to represent literal arrays, and not a regular function.

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.

Example 1. array() example

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