PHP array example

Hello all. It’s been a few weeks since I posted… I’ve been teaching myself PHP to create a web interface for a Asterisk based project I’m working on. My goal is to create a LAMP(Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) web managment tool for creating calling cards for use with Asterisk. The project is called ACCWA(pronounced aqua), the Asterisk Calling Card Web Administration tool. As I put this altogether I will keep my loyal readers updated about what I’ve learned about PHP.

Today I will cover Arrays. PHP handles arrays in manner similar to PERL. Each value can have an optional indice. In my example below, we simply have a list with no idiceses.

example:

<?php

$myarray[]=”hi” ;
$myarray[]=”how” ;
$myarray[]=”are” ;
$myarray[]=”you?” ;

// Now we will ‘echo’ each value in the array
foreach ($myarray as $i) {
echo “$i ” ; }

?>

output of myarray.php:

Above we did two simple task. First we defined a list of words in our array, then we echo’ed each one individually with the ‘foreach’ function. Very similar to BASH.  Your PHP page should display:

hi how are you?
