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();

        }       

?>
