array_pushPush one or more elements onto the end of array


int array_push ( array &$array , mixed $value1 [, mixed $... ] )

array_push() treats array as a stack, and pushes the passed variables onto the end of array. The length of array increases by the number of variables pushed. Has the same effect as:

[] = $var;
repeated for each passed value.

Note: If you use array_push() to add one element to the array it's better to use $array[] = because in that way there is no overhead of calling a function.

Note: array_push() will raise a warning if the first argument is not an array. This differs from the $var[] behaviour where a new array is created.



The input array.


The first value to push onto the end of the array.

Return Values

Returns the new number of elements in the array.


Example #1 array_push() example

= array("orange""banana");

The above example will output:

    [0] => orange
    [1] => banana
    [2] => apple
    [3] => raspberry
