array_uintersect

(PHP 5)

array_uintersectComputes the intersection of arrays, compares data by a callback function

Description

array array_uintersect ( array $array1 , array $array2 [, array $ ... ], callback $data_compare_func )

Computes the intersection of arrays, compares data by a callback function.

Parameters

array1

The first array.

array2

The second array.

data_compare_func

The callback comparison function.

The user supplied callback function is used for comparison. It must return an integer less than, equal to, or greater than zero if the first argument is considered to be respectively less than, equal to, or greater than the second.

Return Values

Returns an array containing all the values of array1 that are present in all the arguments.

Examples

Example #1 array_uintersect() example

<?php
$array1 
= array("a" => "green""b" => "brown""c" => "blue""red");
$array2 = array("a" => "GREEN""B" => "brown""yellow""red");

print_r(array_uintersect($array1$array2"strcasecmp"));
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [a] => green
    [b] => brown
    [0] => red
)

I want to stress that in the user function, you do need to return either a 1 or a -1 properly; you cannot simply return 0 if the results are equal and 1 if they are not. 

The following code is incorrect:

<?php
function myfunction($v1,$v2)
{
if (
$v1===$v2)
    {
    return
0;
    }
return
1;
}

$a1=array(1, 2, 4);
$a2=array(1, 3, 4);
print_r(array_uintersect($a1,$a2,"myfunction"));
?>

This code is correct:

<?php
function myfunction($v1,$v2)
{
if (
$v1===$v2)
    {
    return
0;
    }
if (
$v1 > $v2) return 1;
return -
1;
}
$a1=array(1, 2, 4);
$a2=array(1, 3, 4);
print_r(array_uintersect($a1,$a2,"myfunction"));
?>

As for the other "compare function" callbacks, the return value from the callback function doesn't need to be -1, 0, or 1.

cmp($a,$b) just needs to be <0, =0, or >0 depending on whether $a<$b, $a=$b, or $a>$b.
