Yes I know the array above it small it's an example, mine has over 150
$foundyou = array_search('you', $myarray);
$foundthem = array_search('them', $myarray);
Now I want to take all the array positions from $foundyou to $foundthem and
put their values into a variable;
For the life of me I can't remember how I did it.
I DO NOT want to foreach over the array positions that would be
Well, depends on exactly what you mean by "and put their values into a
variable". Do you mean concatenate all the values into one single
"flat" variable. Or do you mean to make a subset array of the values
between your two points you found?
First, check out array_slice.
Second, look at join
$myarray = array(
$s_pos = array_search('you', $myarray);
$f_pos = array_search('them', $myarray);
# Calculate the length, it is needed by array_slice()
$length = ($f_pos - $s_pos);
$subset_array = array_slice($myarray, $s_pos, $length);
$all_values = join(', ', $subset_array);
Obviously, you need to add in some error checking. But that should get
