Hi Experts,

I have 2 huge array with the same lenght. I need your help to merge them become 1 array on key

For Example:
====Array 1====
Array
(
      [1] => 111 // my value1
      [2] => 222 // my value2
);            

====Array 2====
Array
(
      [1] => abcde.jpg //image name1
      [2] => 12345.jpg //image name2
);

And I need to merge them base on the key number to become:

====Array 3====
Array
(
      [1] => Array
            (
                  [0] => 111 // my value1
                  [1] => abcde.jpg //image name1
            );
      [2] => Array
            (
                  [0] => 222 // my value2
                  [1] => 12345.jpg //image name2
            );
);

I have the code below but it got something wrong, so it won't run.
Can anyone help me to fix it ?
<?
if ($_POST['action']=='upload')
	{
	$a = $_POST[position];
		/*Example print_r($a)	
		Array
		(
			[1] => 111
			[2] => 222
		);		
		*/
		
	$b = $_POST[imgfile];
		/*Example print_r($b)	
		Array
		(
			[1] => abcde.jpg
			[2] => 12345.jpg
		);
		*/
 
		$c = array();	
		foreach ($count='0'; $count < sizeof($a); $count++)
		{
		  $c[$count] = array($a[$count]$b[$count]);
		}
		
		echo "<pre>";
		print_r ($c); die();
	}	
?>

you can add 2 arrays like the following
<?php
 
/**
 * @author ludjer
 */
$a = array("Value 1","Value 2");
$b = array("Value a1","Value a2");
$c = array($a,$b);
 
echo "<pre>";
print_r ($c); 
die();    
?>

in your code your error is from foreach, the command you meant to use is
for($count='0'; $count < sizeof($a); $count++) and i think your code would work.

i also showed how your code should be


example of foreach and for loops
<?php
$arr = array(1, 2, 3, 4);
foreach ($arr as &$value) {
    echo $value."<br \>"; // this will output 1<br \>2<br \>3<br \>4 
    $value = $value * 2;
    echo $value."<br \>"; // this will output 2<br \>4<br \>6<br \>8 
}
// $arr is now array(2, 4, 6, 8)
 
//you where ment to use a for loop command
for ($i = 1; $i <= 10; $i++) {
    echo $i;//this will echo 12345678910
}
?>
 
this is how your code should be
<?
if ($_POST['action']=='upload')
   {
        $a = $_POST[position];
        $b = $_POST[imgfile];
        $c = array($a,$b);   
        echo "<pre>";
        print_r ($c); die();
    }       
?>

well then could you tell me exactly what you need to do, do you want to use foreach loop or a for loop

ill try make 2 versions one with for loop and other with foreach loop

hope this works
forloop
<?PHP
if ($_POST['action']=='upload')
        {
        $a = $_POST[position];
                /*Example print_r($a)   
                Array
                (
                        [1] => 111
                        [2] => 222
                );              
                */
                
        $b = $_POST[imgfile];
                /*Example print_r($b)   
                Array
                (
                        [1] => abcde.jpg
                        [2] => 12345.jpg
                );
                */
		$c = array();   
		for($count= 0 ; $count <= sizeof($a); $count++)
		{
		  $c[$count] = array($a[$count],$b[$count]);
		}
        echo "<pre>";
        print_r ($c); die();
        }       
?>
for each loop
<?PHP
if ($_POST['action']=='upload')
        {
        $a = $_POST[position];
                /*Example print_r($a)   
                Array
                (
                        [1] => 111
                        [2] => 222
                );              
                */
                
        $b = $_POST[imgfile];
                /*Example print_r($b)   
                Array
                (
                        [1] => abcde.jpg
                        [2] => 12345.jpg
                );
                */
		$c = array();
		$counter = 1;
		foreach($a as $variable)
		{
		  $c[$counter] = array($a[$counter],$b[$counter]);
		  $counter++;
		}
        echo "<pre>";
        print_r ($c); die();
        }       
?>
?>
