If you want to get the minimum or maximum value of an array, you can use the min() or max() function. Here is a PHP script on how to use min() and max():

<?php
$array = array(5, 7, 6, 2, 1, 3, 4, 2);
print("Minimum number: ".min($array)."\n");
print("Maximum number: ".max($array)."\n");
$array = array("Zero"=>"PHP", "One"=>"Perl", "Two"=>"Java");
print("Minimum string: ".min($array)."\n");
print("Maximum string: ".max($array)."\n");
?>

This script will print:

Minimum number: 1
Maximum number: 7
Minimum string: Java
Maximum string: Perl

As you can see, min() and max() work for string values too.
