iterator_apply

(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0, PHP 7)

iterator_applyCall a function for every element in an iterator

Description

int iterator_apply ( Traversable $iterator , callable $function [, array $args = NULL ] )

Calls a function for every element in an iterator.

Parameters

iterator

The iterator object to iterate over.

function

The callback function to call on every element. This function only receives the given args, so it is nullary by default. If count($args) === 3, for instance, the callback function is ternary.

Note: The function must return TRUE in order to continue iterating over the iterator.

args

An array of arguments; each element of args is passed to the callback function as separate argument.

Return Values

Returns the iteration count.

Examples

Example #1 iterator_apply() example

<?php
function print_caps(Iterator $iterator) {
    echo strtoupper($iterator->current()) . "\n";
    return TRUE;
}

$it = new ArrayIterator(array("Apples", "Bananas", "Cherries"));
iterator_apply($it, "print_caps", array($it));
?>

The above example will output:

APPLES
BANANAS
CHERRIES
