I am building an array by scannning ten directories.
With each scanned directory, the output is stored in one array.
How do I properly join that array with a second array?

Without duplicate keys!

Array_merge works fine but keys are duplicated.

Keys are always unique, see example:


<?php

$a1 = array("a" => 1, "b" => 2, "c" => 3);

$a2 = array("a" => 10, "d" => 4, "e" => 5);

$a3 = array_merge($a1, $a2);

var_dump($a1);
var_dump($a2);
var_dump($a3);

echo $a3["a"]."\n";

?>

If you haven't named the cells, then it will just merge the arrays
(append one after the other).

scandir creates numerically indexed arrays. Merging these arrays will
create a larger numerically indexed array, eg if you merge two arrays
with keys [0] through [9], you end up with a single array with keys [0]
through [19].

eg if the first dir generated:

$arr1

[0] "."
[1] ".."
[2] "foo.bar"
[3] "really fubar"

and the second dir generated

$arr2

[0] "."
[1] ".."
[2] "bah bah.blacksheep"
[3] "fufu.fubar"

then: array_merge ( $arr1, $arr2 );

will generate:

[0] "."
[1] ".."
[2] "foo.bar"
[3] "really fubar"
[4] "."
[5] ".."
[6] "bah bah.blacksheep"
[7] "fufu.fubar"

How you then tell which file is where, that's your headache at this point.

array_map() serves here.

Not with javascript. Nonsense propagates like wildfire in this field.

It cannot. However, if you apply array_map() to the arrays returned by
scandir() before merging them, the problem at hand does not occur in the
first place:

$modi = max(
array_map('filemtime',
array_diff(
array_merge(
scandir(__DIR__),
array_map(
function ($e) {
return 'sections' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . $e;
},
scandir('sections')
)
),
array('.', '..')
)
)
);

Then why did you say it could?

What a convoluted mess. Glad you're not working on any code I have to
touch!

But then you always did have a knack for making a mountain out of a
molehill.

You can't even read what you wrote... Even though it's part of this

I know what I wrote. I also know that – granting you the benefit of a
doubt one more time – you are not trolling, but that you have misinterpreted
what I wrote. I have written (as can be read in the quotation above, so
there is no need for you or me to repeat it below) that “array_map() serves
here”. It does. I have, upon your query, given an example showing what I
meant with “serves here” from a real-life example (hence “here”).
Apparently you have not bothered to understand the example, as you had
decided to deride it in yet another ad-hominem fallacy of yours.

I have made myself clear now to all who can read carefully and think
clearly. Further misinterpretation on your part will be considered
deliberate, aka trolling, and dealt with accordingly.

}
$lo=$hi;
}

for ($x=0;$x<=$hi;$x++){echo $master[$x]."<br>";}

There was nothing to misinterpret. array_map() does Not solve the
problem of "How you then tell which file is where, that's your headache
at this point.", which is the question it is response to.

But we already know you're too stoopid to understand, and too
egotistical to admit you screwed up (again).

And yes, you made yourself clear. You proved you have no idea how to
solve this problem.

So, do everyone a favor and find another newsgroup to troll. You're
know as one in enough newsgroups that shouldn't be a problem.

As for suggestion someone else is a troll? That is the best laugh I've
heard of all year. It's even better than suggesting Richard is competent.

Questio I have now is, how do I get it so the leading "." and ".." are not
in the final array?
I tried using a conditional with !="." and that did not work.

Looking over my last comment, I have to apologize. It wasn't fair to
Richard. Sorry, Richard, I shouldn't have insulted you like that.

Richard,

If written correctly a conditional for !="." would get rid of the '.'
entry; !=".." would get rid of the ".." entry.

But you didn't show your entire code, so it's hard to say what could be
wrong.

for ($x=0;$x<=$number;$x++){

if ($files[x] !=".") {
$master[$lo]=$files[$x];
$lo=$lo+1;

You really need to find some what to work which lets you see all the
notices and warnings that PHP can give you.

By the way, writing $master[] = ... puts an element at the next unused
numerical index in the array which might be what you are doing here with
$lo. I'd write the above like this:

foreach ($files as $file)
if ($file !== '.')
$master[] = $file;

As Ben pointed out, missing $ from [$x] in $files[x], but that's just
your usual broken code.

> $master[$lo]=$files[$x];
> $lo=$lo+1;
> }
> }

for ( $x=0; $x <= $number; $x++ )
if ( $files[$x] != "." && $files[$x] != ".." )
$master[$lo++] = $files[$x];

The line:

$master[$lo++] = $files[$x];

does the following:

First it assigns the value of $files[$x] to $master[$lo]
Then it increments $lo by 1

And as Ben pointed out, it's possible that the following will work too:

for ( $x=0; $x <= $number; $x++ )
if ( $files[$x] != "." && $files[$x] != ".." )
$master[] = $files[$x];

As it just increments the numeric index of $master by 1 each time it
assigns another element.

Thanks. Works like a charm.
Now how do I also include the ".."?
foreach ($files as $file)
if ($file !== '.' || $file!=="..")
$master[] = $file;
This does not seem to work.

Time to implement the formidable goto eh?

I assume that it does what it should: it will append any file whose name
is not equal to '.' *or* not equal to '..', i.e. every file. You want
to use the && operator here.

Another option which excludes all hidden files:

if ($file[0] != '.')

> Time to implement the formidable goto eh?

Fortunately not.

You're close. You want to add it if $file != "." AND $file != "..".

If $file equals ".", it cannot equal "..", and vice versa. So the test
you have is always true.

So what you want is

if ($file !== "." && $file !== "..")
....

Depends on your definition of "work", I suppose. It definitely does work, in the sense that it
certainly is doing what you told it to. I'm pretty sure it's not doing what you expected it to do,
but that's because your expectations don't match your code.

Consider what happens when $file is equal to "." The first part of your compound condition
is FALSE. The second part is TRUE.

FALSE || TRUE is TRUE.

Now what happens when $file is equal to "..". The first part is TRUE, and the second part is
FALSE.

TRUE || FALSE is TRUE.

Finally, if $file is equal to, say, "abc". Now both parts of the condition are TRUE.

TRUE || TRUE is TRUE.

The results you *want* are FALSE, FALSE, TRUE respectively -- that is, you want the result
to be FALSE when *either* of its inputs is FALSE, and TRUE only if *both* of its inputs are
TRUE. That describes &&, not ||.

No, it's time to fix your broken logic. Google "De Morgan's Laws" for more information.
