An associative array is another type of array where indexes are uniquely identified by a name. Here indexes are known as the key. During printing value, this key is used. One array can take only one unique key. The associate array can also be multidimensional. Below is an example of an associative array. Its needed to be printed
<?php $a = array( "day" => "Wednesday", "date" => "12-12-2018", "temperature" => 19, "humadity" => "25%", "sunny" => "yes" ); ?>
For printing Wednesday as the value it needs to identify the key(index). For Wednesday key is "day". So, to print Wednesday code below is
<?php echo $a['day']; ?>
Result for $a['day'] is Wednesday
In the same way for printing 12-12-2018 and yes its need to write code as well as below.
<?php echo $a['date']."
"; echo $a['sunny']."
Result for the code will be like that.
An associate array can also be multidimensional. To print multi-dimensional associative array general foreach loop is preferred. This is same as the general type of array.
