Question: Explaine array_merge()



Array ( [0] => red [1] => green [2] => blue [3] => yellow )

The array_merge() function merges one or more arrays into one array.

Tip: You can assign one array to the function, or as many as you like.

Note: If two or more array elements have the same key, the last one overrides the others.

Note: If you assign only one array to the array_merge() function, and the keys are integers, the function returns a new array with integer keys starting at 0 and increases by 1 for each value (See Example 2 below).

Tip: The difference between this function and the array_merge_recursive() function is when two or more array elements have the same key. Instead of override the keys, the array_merge_recursive() function makes the value as an array.


$array1 = array(“color” => “red”, 2, 4);
$array2 = array(“a”, “b”, “color” => “green”, “shape” => “trapezoid”, 4);
$result = array_merge($array1, $array2);


Array([color] => green [0] => 2 [1] => 4 [2] => a [3] => b [shape] => trapezoid [4] => 4)
