function toAssoc($arr){
 $data=array();
 if(is_array($arr))
 {
   for($i=0,$limit=count($arr); $i < $limit; ++$i)
   {
      $data[$i]=isset($data[1+$i]) ? $data[1+$i]: '';
      ++$i;
   }
 }
return $data;
}

Hi,

Try this:

$arrInput = array('abc', 'def', 'ghi', 'jkl', 'mno', 'pqr');
$arrOutput = index_array($arrInput);

function index_array($arrInput) {
    $arrOutput = array();
    $intIndex = 0;

    if(is_array($arrInput)) {
        while($intIndex <= count($arrInput)) {
            if(isset($arrInput[$intIndex]) && isset($arrInput[$intIndex + 1])) {
                $arrOutput[$arrInput[$intIndex]] = $arrInput[$intIndex + 1];
            }

            $intIndex += 2;
        }
    }
    
    return $arrOutput;
}

var_dump($arrInput, $arrOutput); die;

hielo,

You have your $arr and $data variables mixed up in your loop, so your function will always return a blank array value for each index.

function toAssoc($arr){
$data=array();
if(is_array($arr))
{
for($i=0,$limit=count($arr); $i < $limit; ++$i)
{
$data[$i]=isset($data[1+$i]) ? $data[1+$i]: '';
++$i;
}
}
return $data;
}

R.

LOL. Yes of course. An oversight of my part. It should be:

$data[ $arr[$i] ]=isset($arr[1+$i]) ? $arr[1+$i]: '';

As a gesture of good faith let me return the favour and tell you that your while needs to check for "less than", not "less than or equal to".

This was already covered in: http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread310238.html
Almost this exact question, with the exception the op there asked for a way to break a string down first then convert a numerical array into an assoc.

function toAssoc(array $array){
     //Temporary array to hold new pieces
     $temp = array();

     //Iterate over supplied array by key and value
     foreach($array as $k => $v){
             //Make sure the key is even using a bitwise operator for efficiency
	     if( ($k&1) == 0 ){
                     //If we have an even key, 0, 2, 4, 6, etc.
                     //Create an array item with key of the current value
                     //and value of next odd array item.
		     $temp[$v] = (isset($pieces[$k+1]) ? $pieces[$k+1] : '');
	     }
     }
     return $temp;
}

Usage:

$test = array('category_name:','c1','types:','t1');
print_r(toAssoc($test));
//Array ( [category_name:] =>c1[types:]=>t1 )

You both had introduced a relatively well known performance no no in your codes.
You should never have a function call in your loops. for($i=0,$limit=count($arr); $i < $limit; ++$i) while($intIndex <= count($arrInput)) In both pieces of code, move the count() function calls outside of the loop initialization.
This is evaluated on every iteration of the loop. You can verify this with a code trace in xdebug.

You can also remove the is_array check from your code by specifying the the parameter passed is of type array. Unfortunately besides object types and the array type there are no other function argument types you can use.

I didn't. The count is in the initializing part of the for construct.
"The first expression (expr1) is evaluated (executed) once unconditionally at the beginning of the loop."

You should never have a function call in your loops.

agree

Excellent! Thanks for that.

Ha! Talk about egg on my face. I read this on my phone and mistook the , for a semi-colon. I stand corrected.

Let's make that a pie instead. That way at least you will "enjoy" somewhat:)

It happens. Thanks for the info on the other matter.
