Parsing array, only want 2 from each key.

I have the following array:
array(
    "536-01033L" => array (

What I want to do is take the FIRST 2 entries from each id and put it into another array with same structure. If there is nly one entry, then it should be that one.

Resulting array would look like this:
array(
    "536-01033L" => array (
                        0 => array ("id" => "BB8", "company" => "CS (BB8)", "part" => "CALIPER", "age" => "543", "cond" => "A", "stock" => "ZZ0759", "ic" => "536-01033L", "holl" => "536", "price" => "35.00", "qty" => "1", "location" => "1E44", "comments" => "LH,SE"),

"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 need to run a loop of the outer loop and use an array_slice function as below.

echo "<pre>";
print_r(array_slice($arr["536-01033L"],0,2));

@Swatantra Almost there. It only pulls the first 2 from each first level array, please look at expected results above.

Check the length of outer loop if that is > 5 pass 2 in slice function otherwise length.

Eddie ShipmanAll-around developerAuthor Commented:
What? This has to be dynamic, the array may have more or less items in each subarray
0
Swatantra BhargavaTechnical Specialist/DeveloperCommented:
Yes... That is why we are calculating the length of the array every time.
0
Eddie ShipmanAll-around developerAuthor Commented:
Still don't know what you are saying, The expected result above is much bigger than 5 elements. Because you have to check for the id value and the count, array_XXXX functions will not work, here.. You have to use loops.
0
Eddie ShipmanAll-around developerAuthor Commented:
This code is getting close. I just can only get the first 2 of the subarray, not the first 2 of each id:

$new_arr = array();
foreach($x as $k=>$v) {
    $id = "";
    $cnt = 1;
    $new_arr[$k] = array();
    foreach($v as $ic) {
        if($id !== $ic["id"] and $cnt < 3) {
            if(is_array($ic)) {
                array_push($new_arr[$k], $ic);
            }
            $id = $ic["id"];
            $cnt++;
        }
    };
};
print_r($new_arr);

I mean to say like this:

echo "<pre>";
foreach ($arr as $row) {
   echo "<br>Array Length: ".count($row);
   $arrLength = count($row);

if($arrLength > 5)
	$finalArr[] = array_slice($row,0,2);
else
	$finalArr[] = $row;
}
print_r($finalArr);

Assume your data is in $data then you can do this
$result = array();
$current = '';
foreach($data as $k => $item) {
  $result[$k] = array();
  foreach($item as $rec) {
    if ($rec['id'] != $current) {
      $count = 0;
      $current = $rec['id'];
    }
    if ($count++ < 2) {
      $result[$k][] = $rec; 
    }
  }
}
