How to delete values from an array using php

I have two arrays, $array_1 and $array_2.
If a value in $array_2 is also found in $array_1 it should be deleted from $array_1.
The same value might be found several times in both of the arrays. Is the value present in $array_2, regardless of number of appearances, it should be deleted from all appearances in $array_1.
Script language: php
What procedure do you recommend?

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

You can use array_diff function for this.

Value  green is twice in below example.


<?php
$a1=array("a"=>"red","b"=>"green","h"=>"green","c"=>"blue","d"=>"yellow");
$a2=array("e"=>"red","f"=>"green","g"=>"blue");

$result=array_diff($a1,$a2);
print_r($result);
?>

Only recommendation I would make over Peos John's reply is to rather use the www.php.net resource as a reference. W3 Schools is ok but PHP.Net is the definitive source and has a wealth of other related information in the examples, topic posts and related function lists

No points for this, please, but I would add that sometimes the most useful part of the online PHP manual are the user-contributed notes in the function reference.  Examples:
http://php.net/manual/fr/function.array-unique.php#81513
http://php.net/manual/en/function.array-slice.php#112359
http://php.net/manual/en/function.array-diff.php#68623  <<< Especially this one!
