array_chunk

(PHP 4 >= 4.2.0, PHP 5)

array_chunkSépare un tableau en tableaux de taille inférieure

Description

array array_chunk ( array $array , int $size [, bool $preserve_keys = false ] )

Sépare le tableau array en plusieurs tableaux comptant size éléments. Il est aussi possible que le dernier tableau contienne moins de valeurs.

Liste de paramètres

array

Le tableau à traiter

size

La taille de chaque tableau

preserve_keys

Lorsque définit à TRUE, les clés seront préservées. Par défaut, vaut FALSE ce qui réindexera le tableau résultant numériquement

Valeurs de retour

Retourne un tableau multidimensionnel indexé numériquement, commençant à zéro, dont chaque dimension contient size éléments.

Erreurs / Exceptions

Si size est inférieur à 1, une alerte de niveau E_WARNING sera émise et NULL retournée.

Exemples

Exemple #1 Exemple avec array_chunk()

<?php
$input_array 
= array('a''b''c''d''e');
print_r(array_chunk($input_array2));
print_r(array_chunk($input_array2true));
?>

Tried to use an example below (#56022) for array_chunk_fixed that would "partition" or divide an array into a desired number of split lists -- a useful procedure for "chunking" up objects or text items into columns, or partitioning any type of data resource. However, there seems to be a flaw with array_chunk_fixed — for instance, try it with a nine item list and with four partitions. It results in 3 entries with 3 items, then a blank array.

So, here is the output of my own dabbling on the matter:

<?php

function partition( $list, $p ) {
   
$listlen = count( $list );
   
$partlen = floor( $listlen / $p );
   
$partrem = $listlen % $p;
   
$partition = array();
   
$mark = 0;
    for (
$px = 0; $px < $p; $px++) {
       
$incr = ($px < $partrem) ? $partlen + 1 : $partlen;
       
$partition[$px] = array_slice( $list, $mark, $incr );
       
$mark += $incr;
    }
    return
$partition;
}

$citylist = array( "Black Canyon City", "Chandler", "Flagstaff", "Gilbert", "Glendale", "Globe", "Mesa", "Miami",
                  
"Phoenix", "Peoria", "Prescott", "Scottsdale", "Sun City", "Surprise", "Tempe", "Tucson", "Wickenburg" );
print_r( partition( $citylist, 3 ) );

?>

Here my array_chunk_values( ) with values distributed by lines (columns are balanced as much as possible) :

<?php
   
function array_chunk_vertical($data, $columns) {
       
$n = count($data) ;
       
$per_column = floor($n / $columns) ;
       
$rest = $n % $columns ;

       
// The map

        for (
$i = 0 ; $i < $columns ; $i++ ) {
           
$per_columns[$i] = $per_column + ($i < $rest ? 1 : 0) ;
        }

       
$tabular = array( ) ;
        foreach (
$per_columns as $rows ) {
            for (
$i = 0 ; $i < $rows ; $i++ ) {
               
$tabular[$i][ ] = array_shift($data) ;
            }
        }

        return
$tabular ;
    }

   
header('Content-Type: text/plain') ;

   
$data = array_chunk_vertical(range(1, 31), 7) ;
    foreach (
$data as $row ) {
        foreach (
$row as $value ) {
           
printf('[%2s]', $value) ;
        }
        echo

If you just want to grab one chunk from an array, you should use array_slice().

Hi, I've made  a function to split an array into chunks based on columns wanted. For example:

<?php $a = array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8); ?>

goal (say, for 3 columns):

<?php
array(
   array(
1,2,3),
   array(
4,5,6),
   array(
7,8)
);
?>

<?php
function get_array_columns($array, $columns){
       
       
$columns_map = array();
        for(
$i=0; $i<$columns; $i++){ $columns_map[] = 0; }//init columns
       
        //create map
       
$count = count($array);
       
$position = 0;
        while(
$count > 0){
           
$columns_map[$position]++;
           
$position = ($position < $columns-1) ? ++$position : 0;
           
$count--;
        }

       
//chunk the array based on map
       
$chunked = array();
        foreach(
$columns_map as $map){
           
$chunked[] = array_splice($array,0,$map);
        }
       
        return
$chunked;
    }
//end get_array_columns
?>

This function takes each few elements of an array and averages them together. It then places the averages in a new array. It is used to smooth out data. For example lets say you have a years worth of hit data to a site and you want to graph it by the week. Then use a bucket of 7 and graph the functions output.

function array_bucket($array, $bucket_size)  // bucket filter
{
    if (!is_array($array)) return false; // no empty arrays
    $buckets=array_chunk($array,$bucket_size);  // chop up array into bucket size units
    foreach ($buckets as $bucket) $new_array[key($buckets])=array_sum($bucket)/count($bucket);
    return $new_array;  // return new smooth array

based on the same syntax, useful about making columns :

<?php
function array_chunk_fixed($input, $num, $preserve_keys = FALSE) {
   
$count = count($input) ;
    if(
$count)
       
$input = array_chunk($input, ceil($count/$num), $preserve_keys) ;
   
$input = array_pad($input, $num, array()) ;
    return
$input ;
}

$array = array(1, 2, 3, 4, 5) ;
print_r(array_chunk($array, 2)) ;
print_r(array_chunk_fixed($array, 2)) ;
?>

---- array_chunk : fixed number of sub-items ----
Array(
    [0] => Array(
            [0] => 1
            [1] => 2
        )
    [1] => Array(
            [0] => 3
            [1] => 4
        )

    [2] => Array(
            [0] => 5
        )
)

---- array_chunk : fixed number of columns ----
Array(
    [0] => Array(
            [0] => 1
            [1] => 2
            [2] => 3
        )
    [1] => Array(
            [0] => 4
            [1] => 5
        )

array_chunk() is helpful when constructing tables with a known number of columns but an unknown number of values, such as a calendar month. Example:

<?php

$values
= range(1, 31);
$rows = array_chunk($values, 7);

print
"<table>\n";
foreach (
$rows as $row) {
    print
"<tr>\n";
    foreach (
$row as $value) {
        print
"<td>" . $value . "</td>\n";
    }
    print
"</tr>\n";
}
print
"</table>\n";

?>

Outputs:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
8 9 10 11 12 13 14
15 16 17 18 19 20 21
22 23 24 25 26 27 28
29 30 31

The other direction is possible too, with the aid of a function included at the bottom of this note. Changing this line:
  $rows = array_chunk($values, 7);

To this:
  $rows = array_chunk_vertical($values, 7);

Produces a vertical calendar with seven columns:

1 6  11 16 21 26 31
2 7  12 17 22 27
3 8  13 18 23 28
4 9  14 19 24 29
5 10 15 20 25 30

You can also specify that $size refers to the number of rows, not columns:
  $rows = array_chunk_vertical($values, 7, false, false);

Producing this:

1 8  15 22 29
2 9  16 23 30
3 10 17 24 31
4 11 18 25
5 12 19 26
6 13 20 27
7 14 21 28

The function:

<?php

function array_chunk_vertical($input, $size, $preserve_keys = false, $size_is_horizontal = true)
{
   
$chunks = array();
   
    if (
$size_is_horizontal) {
       
$chunk_count = ceil(count($input) / $size);
    } else {
       
$chunk_count = $size;
    }
   
    for (
$chunk_index = 0; $chunk_index < $chunk_count; $chunk_index++) {
       
$chunks[] = array();
    }

   
$chunk_index = 0;
    foreach (
$input as $key => $value)
    {
        if (
$preserve_keys) {
           
$chunks[$chunk_index][$key] = $value;
        } else {
           
$chunks[$chunk_index][] = $value;
        }
       
        if (++
$chunk_index == $chunk_count) {
           
$chunk_index = 0;
        }
    }
   
    return
$chunks;
}

This function can be used to reverse effect of <?php array_Chunk()?>.
<?php
function array_Unchunk($array)
{
    return
call_User_Func_Array('array_Merge',$array);
}

header('Content-Type: text/plain');

[Editors note: This function was based on a previous function by gphemsley at nospam users dot sourceforge.net]

For those of you that need array_chunk() for PHP < 4.2.0, this function should do the trick:

<?php
if (!function_exists('array_chunk')) {
    function
array_chunk( $input, $size, $preserve_keys = false) {
        @
reset( $input );
       
       
$i = $j = 0;

        while( @list(
$key, $value ) = @each( $input ) ) {
            if( !( isset(
$chunks[$i] ) ) ) {
              
$chunks[$i] = array();
            }

            if(
count( $chunks[$i] ) < $size ) {
                if(
$preserve_keys ) {
                   
$chunks[$i][$key] = $value;
                   
$j++;
                } else {
                   
$chunks[$i][] = $value;
                }
            } else {
               
$i++;

                if(
$preserve_keys ) {
                   
$chunks[$i][$key] = $value;
                   
$j++;
                } else {
                   
$j = 0;
                   
$chunks[$i][$j] = $value;
                }
            }
        }

        return
$chunks;
    }
}

Couldn't get the array_chunk_values() working, so ended up with this implementation:

<?php
function array_chunk_columns($data, $num_columns) {
 
$n = count($data);
 
$per_column = floor($n / $num_columns);
 
$rest = $n % $num_columns;

 
$columns = array();
 
$index = 0;
  for (
$i = 0; $i < $num_columns; $i++) {
   
// Add an extra item to each column while the column number is less than the
    // remainder.
   
$add_rest = ($rest && ($i < $rest)) ? 1 : 0;
   
$number = $per_column + $add_rest;
   
$columns[] = array_slice($data, $index, $number);
   
$index += $number;
  }

  return
$columns;
}

Mistake key did not do what I thought. A patch.

function array_bucket($array,$bucket_size)// bucket filter
{
    if (!is_array($array)) return false;
    $buckets=array_chunk($array,$bucket_size);// chop up array into bucket size units
    $I=0;
    foreach ($buckets as $bucket)
    {
        $new_array[$I++]=array_sum($bucket)/count($bucket);
    }
    return $new_array;// return new array

Unfortunately, this function only accepts real arrays, not iterable objects... For that, you need this function:

<?php

function break_array($array, $page_size) {
 
 
$arrays = array();
 
$i = 0;
 
  foreach (
$array as $index => $item) {
    if (
$i++ % $page_size == 0) {
     
$arrays[] = array();
     
$current = & $arrays[count($arrays)-1];
    }
   
$current[] = $item;
  }
 
  return
$arrays;
 
}

?>
