(PHP 4, PHP 5)

uasortSort an array with a user-defined comparison function and maintain index association

Description

bool uasort ( array &$array , callable $cmp_function )

This function sorts an array such that array indices maintain their correlation with the array elements they are associated with, using a user-defined comparison function.

This is used mainly when sorting associative arrays where the actual element order is significant.

Examples

Example #1 Basic uasort() example

<?php
// Comparison function
function cmp($a$b) {
    if (
$a == $b) {
        return 
0;
    }
    return (
$a $b) ? -1;
}

// Array to be sorted
$array = array('a' => 4'b' => 8'c' => -1'd' => -9'e' => 2'f' => 5'g' => 3'h' => -4);
print_r($array);

// Sort and print the resulting array
uasort($array'cmp');
print_r($array);
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [a] => 4
    [b] => 8
    [c] => -1
    [d] => -9
    [e] => 2
    [f] => 5
    [g] => 3
    [h] => -4
)

)
