"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is nothing explicitly like Java's linked hash tables - PHP arrays are just simple associative arrays. PHP 5 does have a standard library that may get yu some way towards your goal. See http://uk3.php.net/spl and perhaps one of the HEAP classes.

Maybe a more pertinent question is why you would need such a structure in the first place? PHP is not performance oriented in the same way Java is because with PHP running on a server with almost no user interaction (compared to a GUI) there is little need for such complexity.
