Parameters

array

The input array.

Return Values

Returns the shifted value, or NULL if array is empty or is not an array.

Examples

Example #1 array_shift() example

<?php
$stack 
= array("orange""banana""apple""raspberry");
$fruit array_shift($stack);
print_r($stack);
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [0] => banana
    [1] => apple
    [2] => raspberry
)

and orange will be assigned to $fruit.
