Looping through multidimensional array

I have a PHP array, $contents like this

        Array
    (
        [0] => Array
            (
                [comment] =>
                [kickstart] => /var/lib/cough/cough/wheeze.cfg
               
            )

Obviously this is quite heavily populated. I want to pull out all the "comments" from the array.

I tried this:

foreach ($contents as $key => $a) {
echo $contents[$a]['comment'];
}

but didn't work.

Any help appreciated.

echo $a['comment'];

$a has a reference to the array item already.

Use the key, not the value. Try:

foreach ($contents as $key => $value) {
  echo $contents[$key]['comment'];
}

try this one, just copy paste it,

foreach ($contents as $content) {
      echo $content['comment'] . '<br />';
}
