array_keys

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

array_keys -- Return all the keys of an array

Description

array array_keys ( array input [, mixed search_value [, bool strict]] )

array_keys() returns the keys, numeric and string, from the input array.

If the optional search_value is specified, then only the keys for that value are returned. Otherwise, all the keys from the input are returned. As of PHP 5, you can use strict parameter for comparison including type (===).

Example 1. array_keys() example

<?php
$array
= array(0 => 100, "color" => "red");
print_r(array_keys($array));

$array = array("blue", "red", "green", "blue", "blue");
print_r(array_keys($array, "blue"));

$array = array("color" => array("blue", "red", "green"),
               
"size"  => array("small", "medium", "large"));
print_r(array_keys($array));
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [0] => 0
    [1] => color
)
Array
(
    [0] => 0
    [1] => 3
    [2] => 4
)
Array
(
    [0] => color
    [1] => size
)
