Last 5.3 release ever available: PHP 5.3.29 - 5.3 now EOL

array_replace

(PHP 5 >= 5.3.0)

array_replaceReplaces elements from passed arrays into the first array

Descrierea

array array_replace ( array $array1 , array $array2 [, array $... ] )

array_replace() replaces the values of array1 with values having the same keys in each of the following arrays. If a key from the first array exists in the second array, its value will be replaced by the value from the second array. If the key exists in the second array, and not the first, it will be created in the first array. If a key only exists in the first array, it will be left as is. If several arrays are passed for replacement, they will be processed in order, the later arrays overwriting the previous values.

array_replace() is not recursive : it will replace values in the first array by whatever type is in the second array.

Parametri

array1

The array in which elements are replaced.

array2

The array from which elements will be extracted.

...

More arrays from which elements will be extracted. Values from later arrays overwrite the previous values.

Valorile întoarse

Returns an array, or NULL if an error occurs.

Exemple

Example #1 array_replace() example

<?php
$base 
= array("orange""banana""apple""raspberry");
$replacements = array(=> "pineapple"=> "cherry");
$replacements2 = array(=> "grape");

$basket array_replace($base$replacements$replacements2);
print_r($basket);
?>

Exemplul de mai sus va afișa:

Array
(
    [0] => grape
    [1] => banana
    [2] => apple
    [3] => raspberry
    [4] => cherry
)

Instead of calling this function, it's often faster and simpler to do this instead:

<?php
$array_replaced
= $array2 + $array1;
?>

If you need references to stay intact:

<?php
$array2
+= $array1;
?>

In some cases you might have a structured array from the database and one
of its nodes goes like this;

<?php
# a random node structure
$arr    = array(
   
'name'  => 'some name',
   
'key2'  => 'value2',
   
'title' => 'some title',
   
'key4'  => 4,
   
'json'  => '[1,0,1,1,0]'
);

# capture these keys values into given order
$keys   = array( 'name', 'json', 'title' );
?>

Now consider that you want to capture $arr values from $keys.
Assuming that you have a limitation to display the content into given keys
order, i.e. use it with a vsprintf, you could use the following

<?php
# string to transform
$string = "<p>name: %s, json: %s, title: %s</p>";

# flip keys once, we will use this twice
$keys   = array_flip( $keys );

# get values from $arr
$test   = array_intersect_key( $arr, $keys );

# still not good enough
echo vsprintf( $string, $test );
// output --> name: some name, json: some title, title: [1,0,1,1,0]

# usage of array_replace to get exact order and save the day
$test   = array_replace( $keys, $test );

# exact output
echo vsprintf( $string, $test );
// output --> name: some name, json: [1,0,1,1,0], title: some title

?>

I hope that this will save someone's time.

<?php
// we wanted the output of only selected array_keys from a big array from a csv-table
// with different order of keys, with optional suppressing of empty or unused values

$values = array
(
   
'Article'=>'24497',
   
'Type'=>'LED',
   
'Socket'=>'E27',
   
'Dimmable'=>'',
   
'Wattage'=>'10W'
);

$keys = array_fill_keys(array('Article','Wattage','Dimmable','Type','Foobar'), ''); // wanted array with empty value

$allkeys = array_replace($keys, array_intersect_key($values, $keys));    // replace only the wanted keys

$notempty = array_filter($allkeys, 'strlen'); // strlen used as the callback-function with 0==false

print '<pre>';
print_r($allkeys);
print_r($notempty);

I got hit with a noob mistake. :)

When the function was called more than once, it threw a function redeclare error of course.  The enviroment I was coding in never called it more than once but I caught it in testing and here is the fully working revision.  A simple logical step was all that was needed.

With PHP 5.3 still unstable for Debian Lenny at this time and not knowing if array_replace would work with multi-dimensional arrays, I wrote my own.  Since this site has helped me so much, I felt the need to return the favor. :)

<?php
       
// Polecat's Multi-dimensional array_replace function
        // Will take all data in second array and apply to first array leaving any non-corresponding values untouched and intact
       
function polecat_array_replace( array &$array1, array &$array2 ) {
           
// This sub function is the iterator that will loop back on itself ad infinitum till it runs out of array dimensions
           
if(!function_exists('tier_parse')){
                function
tier_parse(array &$t_array1, array&$t_array2) {
                    foreach (
$t_array2 as $k2 => $v2) {
                        if (
is_array($t_array2[$k2])) {
                           
tier_parse($t_array1[$k2], $t_array2[$k2]);
                        } else {
                           
$t_array1[$k2] = $t_array2[$k2];
                        }
                    }
                    return
$t_array1;
                }
            }
           
            foreach (
$array2 as $key => $val) {
                if (
is_array($array2[$key])) {
                   
tier_parse($array1[$key], $array2[$key]);
                } else {
                   
$array1[$key] = $array2[$key];
                }
            }
            return
$array1;
        }
?>

[I would also like to note] that if you want to add a single dimensional array to a multi, all you must do is pass the matching internal array key from the multi as the initial argument as such:

<?php
$array1
= array( "berries" => array( "strawberry" => array( "color" => "red", "food" => "desserts"), "dewberry" = array( "color" => "dark violet", "food" => "pies"), );

$array2 = array( "food" => "wine");

$array1["berries"]["dewberry"] = polecat_array_replace($array1["berries"]["dewberry"], $array2);
?>

This is will replace the value for "food" for "dewberry" with "wine".

The function will also do the reverse and add a multi to a single dimensional array or even a 2 tier array to a 5 tier as long as the heirarchy tree is identical.

I hope this helps atleast one person for all that I've gained from this site.

To get exactly same result like in PHP 5.3, the foreach loop in your code should look like:

<?php
...
$count = func_num_args();

for (
$i = 1; $i < $count; $i++) {
   ...
}
...
?>

Check on this code:

<?php
$base
= array('id' => NULL, 'login' => NULL, 'credit' => NULL);
$arr1 = array('id' => 2, 'login' => NULL, 'credit' => 5);
$arr2 = array('id' => NULL, 'login' => 'john.doe', 'credit' => 100);
$result = array_replace($base, $arr1, $arr2);

/*
correct output:

array(3) {
   "id" => NULL
   "login" => string(8) "john.doe"
   "credit" => int(100)
}

your output:

array(3) {
   "id" => int(2)
   "login" => NULL
   "credit" => int(5)
}
*/
?>

Function array_replace "replaces elements from passed arrays into the first array" -- this means replace from top-right to first, then from top-right - 1 to first, etc, etc...

Simple function to replace array keys. Note you have to manually select wether existing keys will be overrided.

/**
  * @param array $array
  * @param array $replacements
  * @param boolean $override
  * @return array
  */
function array_replace_keys(array $array, array $replacements, $override = false) {
    foreach ($replacements as $old => $new) {
        if(is_int($new) || is_string($new)){
            if(array_key_exists($old, $array)){
                if(array_key_exists($new, $array) && $override === false){
                    continue;
                }
                $array[$new] = $array[$old];
                unset($array[$old]);
            }
        }
    }
    return $array;
}

I would like to add to my previous note about my polecat_array_replace function that if you want to add a single dimensional array to a multi, all you must do is pass the matching internal array key from the multi as the initial argument as such:

$array1 = array( "berries" => array( "strawberry" => array( "color" => "red", "food" => "desserts"), "dewberry" = array( "color" => "dark violet", "food" => "pies"), );

$array2 = array( "food" => "wine");

$array1["berries"]["dewberry"] = polecat_array_replace($array1["berries"]["dewberry"], $array2);

This is will replace the value for "food" for "dewberry" with "wine".

The function will also do the reverse and add a multi to a single dimensional array or even a 2 tier array to a 5 tier as long as the heirarchy tree is identical.

a little enhancement to dyer85 at gmail dot com's function below:
<?php
if (!function_exists('array_replace'))
{
  function
array_replace( array &$array, array &$array1, $filterEmpty=false )
  {
   
$args = func_get_args();
   
$count = func_num_args()-1;

    for (
$i = 0; $i < $count; ++$i) {
      if (
is_array($args[$i])) {
        foreach (
$args[$i] as $key => $val) {
            if (
$filterEmpty && empty($val)) continue;
           
$array[$key] = $val;
        }
      }
      else {
       
trigger_error(
         
__FUNCTION__ . '(): Argument #' . ($i+1) . ' is not an array',
         
E_USER_WARNING
       
);
        return
NULL;
      }
    }

    return
$array;
  }
}
?>

this will allow you to "tetris-like" merge arrays:

<?php

$a
= array(
   
0 => "foo",
   
1 => "",
   
2 => "baz"
);
$b= array(
   
0 => "",
   
1 => "bar",
   
2 => ""
);

print_r(array_replace($a,$b, true));

?>
results in:
Array
(
    [0] => foo
    [1] => bar
    [2] => baz
)
