Hi! 1. I believe every serious programmer out there uses arrays on a regular basis... 1.1. ...exactly because there are so many problems virtually unsolvable without them. Take for instance the case of a product page where people would fill in ordering quantitites.
My recommendation would be not to study arrays, but rather try solving problems using them - that way you'll have a better chance to remember what you've learned. But then again, that's me - maybe you learn better in other ways. If you want to sleep, you can use sleep($seconds). But why in God's name would you want to do that?
