Getting Minimum/Maximum Value of an Array in PHP


How To Get the Minimum or Maximum Value of an Array in PHP?



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():

$array = array(5, 7, 6, 2, 1, 3, 4, 2);
print("Minimum number: ".min($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.
