PHP Function -> Array

I have a PHP function which populates a multi-dimensional array

$client->getResponse()

I want to utilise that array directly, something like this:

echo '$client->getResponse()[0]'; which obviously doesn't work.

I don't want to have to do this

$arr = array($client->getResponse()); as that brings in another level of array which I don't really want.

You cannot echo an array use print_r instead http://www.php.net/print_r

If your function returns an array then

$arr = $client->getResponse();

should be sufficient to store it in $arr - no extra array levels needed

So what you are saying is the method getResponse() in the class $client has populated an array.  Use the array name,

$client->getResponse();

echo $array_name[0];

you remove the quotes:
echo $client->getResponse()[0];

and it shall work.

or:
$arr = $client->getResponse();
echo $arr[0];
