array_pop() will take the last element off an array.
array_slice() will take the first element
unset() will delete an array.

These are all documented on the PHP.net web site.

Some of the array functions act as if the &array notation is used, so it is wise to read the descriptions carefully.  They are all very old PHP functions and date from the times when we got the needle-haystack confusion of function arguments.  Check the left sidebar of this page for a list of the array functions.  HTH, ~Ray
