How to convert an array to PHP variables ?


I would like to request an assistant.

I have the script as follows :

$package_array = get_hosting($cpid);

It produce the following array :

    [hid] => 2
    [hownerid] => admin
    [huser] => dsg462
    [hpass] => dsfserw354
    [horder_id] =>
    [hpackage_id] => 211436549
    [hplan] => Linux-Standard-Plan
    [hterm] => Annually
    [hstatus] => 1
    [hserver] => Server8
    [hfqdn] =>
    [serverip] =>
    [hip] =>
    [hdns1] =>
    [hdns2] =>
    [hdns3] =>
    [hdns4] =>
    [hdomain] =>
    [hrenew_date] => 09-29-2014
    [hstart_date] => 09-29-2013
    [hrenewed_on] => 09-29-2013
    [hlast_invoice] =>
    [hprice_override] =>
    [hprice_override_expires] =>

May i know how to convert this array to variables ?

You can assign the array indexes to variables with extract() but there are a variety of reasons why that is a risky programming practice.  It's smarter to just address the array elements directly and not risk the proliferation of variables into your symbol table.
