(PHP3 >= 3.0.3, PHP4 )

array_walk --  Apply a user function to every member of an array


int array_walk (array arr, string func, mixed userdata)

Applies the function named by func to each element of arr. func will be passed array value as the first parameter and array key as the second parameter. If userdata is supplied, it will be passed as the third parameter to the user function.

If func requires more than two or three arguments, depending on userdata, a warning will be generated each time array_walk() calls func. These warnings may be suppressed by prepending the '@' sign to the array_walk() call, or by using error_reporting().

Note: If func needs to be working with the actual values of the array, specify that the first parameter of func should be passed by reference. Then any changes made to those elements will be made in the array itself.

Note: Passing the key and userdata to func was added in 4.0.

In PHP 4 reset() needs to be called as necessary since array_walk() does not reset the array by default.

Example 1. Array_walk() example

$fruits = array ("d"=>"lemon", "a"=>"orange", "b"=>"banana", "c"=>"apple");

function test_alter (&$item1, $key, $prefix) {
    $item1 = "$prefix: $item1";

function test_print ($item2, $key) {
    echo "$key. $item2<br>\n";

array_walk ($fruits, 'test_print');
reset ($fruits);
array_walk ($fruits, 'test_alter', 'fruit');
reset ($fruits);
array_walk ($fruits, 'test_print');
