Arrays in PHP

Arrays don’t have any special flavor added in PHP, the basic essence remains the same irrespective of any programming or scripting language.

An array is a data structure that contains values, all of the same type.

There are three types of arrays in PHP –

  1. Numeric array
  2. Associative arrays
  3. Multidimensional arrays

Numeric array: Arrays whose index is always a number.
