PHP Manual


compact

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

compactCreate array containing variables and their values

Description

array compact ( mixed $varname [, mixed $... ] )

Creates an array containing variables and their values.

For each of these, compact() looks for a variable with that name in the current symbol table and adds it to the output array such that the variable name becomes the key and the contents of the variable become the value for that key. In short, it does the opposite of extract().

Any strings that are not set will simply be skipped.

Parameters

varname

compact() takes a variable number of parameters. Each parameter can be either a string containing the name of the variable, or an array of variable names. The array can contain other arrays of variable names inside it; compact() handles it recursively.

Return Values

Returns the output array with all the variables added to it.

Examples

Example #1 compact() example

<?php
$city  
"San Francisco";
$state "CA";
$event "SIGGRAPH";

$location_vars = array("city""state");

$result compact("event""nothing_here"$location_vars);
print_r($result);
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [event] => SIGGRAPH
    [city] => San Francisco
    [state] => CA
)

Notes

Note: Gotcha

Because variable variables may not be used with PHP's Superglobal arrays within functions, the Superglobal arrays may not be passed into compact().
