sort

(PHP 3, PHP 4 , PHP 5)

sort -- Sort an array

Description

bool sort ( array array [, int sort_flags])

This function sorts an array. Elements will be arranged from lowest to highest when this function has completed.

Note: This function assigns new keys for the elements in array. It will remove any existing keys you may have assigned, rather than just reordering the keys.

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Example 1. sort() example

<?php

$fruits
= array("lemon", "orange", "banana", "apple");
sort($fruits);
reset($fruits);
while (list(
$key, $val) = each($fruits)) {
    echo
"fruits[" . $key . "] = " . $val . "\n";
}

?>

This example would display:

fruits[0] = apple
fruits[1] = banana
fruits[2] = lemon
fruits[3] = orange

The fruits have been sorted in alphabetical order.

The optional second parameter sort_flags may be used to modify the sorting behavior using these values:
