Hello,

I am trying to combine 2 array so I can Implode them together.
$new_array1 contains field names
$new_array2 contains values

example being
$new_array1 = array('id', 'username', 'password');
$new_array2 = array('1', 'tom', 'cat');

$combined_array = array_merge ($new_array1, $new_array2);

print_r($combined_array);

the output I get is:
Array ( [0] => id = [1] => username = [2] => alpha [3] => beta )

it links the array together, but it appends array 2 to array 1.
what I am trying to do is to link both arrays together so

the master array = the first element of array 1 and array 2.

please can someone explain this to me please.

regards,Gavin




$combined_array = array_merge ($new_array1, $new_array2);
print_r($combined_array);

Use an iterator like foreach to access the two arrays.  But you have to be absolutely certain that the arrays match the way you want them to!
// UNTESTED CODE
$new = array();
foreach ($array1 as $num => $key)
{
   $new[$key] = $array2[$num];
}

From this and another question you posted here at EE, I think you might want to stop programming for a little while and get some foundation in how PHP works.  This book is very readable and has great examples.  Give yourself a month to work though it and you will be way ahead in the game.  It will not make you a pro but it will get you started in the right direction.  Now in its fourth printing, it has been a part of my professional library since Version One.
