# search in an array of array

Hello,

I've an array of array(1,2,3,4). I'd like to retrieve the values in 3 and 4
giving the values 1 and 2. How can I do that, how to search in an array of
array ? in short, how to write the findvalue function ?

\$list = array();
array_push(\$list,array(1,1,'x','x');
array_push(\$list,array(1,2,'x','y');
array_push(\$list,array(2,1,'y','x');
array_push(\$list,array(2,2,'y','y');

\$result = array();
\$result = findvalue(1,2); //should return 'x','y'

function findvalue(\$a,\$b){
//return the array of values...
}

Thanks for helping.

\$list = array();
array_push(\$list,array(1,1,'x','x');
array_push(\$list,array(1,2,'x','y');
array_push(\$list,array(2,1,'y','x');
array_push(\$list,array(2,2,'y','y');

\$result = array();
\$result = findvalue(1,2); //should return 'x','y'

function findvalue(\$a,\$b){
//return the array of values...
}
print_r(\$list[1][2]);
not sure why you need a function here.

Yet he wants to find the record in \$list[1].

OP: for a single search a foreach loop or customized array_filter come to
mind. If you have to search a lot of entries, you might want to build an
array of references, indezing the array. Be very, very sure you need it
though, your code becomes somewhat unreadable by another coder.

I've a loop that goes trough all records of \$list and check the values...not
sure is the best way to do so...my \$list array contains about 1500 records
each is an array of 5 fields.

function findvalue(\$check1,\$check2){
global \$list

foreach (\$list as \$key =\$value){
if((\$value[0] = = \$check1) and (\$value[1] = = \$check2)){
return array(strtoupper(\$value[3]),strtoupper(\$value[2]));
break;
}
}
}
