How do I choose/find the function that is right for what I want to do. I
have been using the phpManual which is one of the reasons I came to PHP.
I would like to know how to search for a function only knowing what you want
to achieve with it. Say I want to have an array be stripped of all "&&"
values. How would I find a function or see if one exists based on those
Re: Choosing the right PHP function for the job
I like using the online version of the docs, since it is always
up-to-date, is easily searchable, and contains some valuable user
comments. The function reference is grouped by category:
If you click on a particular category (in your example, I'd say 'Array
Functions' is a good place to start) you can quickly look though a list
of available functions and get a quick idea of what each one does, as
well as other useful info:
Looking through the list, array_filter looks interesting.
