How to combine or merge array in php - with example
Beginners have lots of confusion between array combine and array merge in PHP. So I just go through with this post to introduce the difference between the array combine and array merge in PHP.
Let's start with these PHP functions which are used for combing and merging the array viz array_combine() and array_merge().
Now talk about the array_combine() :
<?php $name = array("Jhon","Tony","Hulk"); $age = array("25","34","40"); $result = array_combine($fname,$age); echo '<pre>'; // used for indenting print_r($result ); ?>
Output of array combine is:
Array ( [Jhon] => 25 [Tony] => 34 [Hulk] => 40 )
Now talk about the array_merge() :
<?php $array_one = array("Jhon","Devid"); $array_two = array("Kim","Sara"); echo '<pre>'; // used for indenting print_r(array_merge($array_one,$array_two)); ?>
Output of array merge is:
Array (  => Jhon  => Devid  => Kim  => Sara )
