ProDevTips:
Sorting 2D-arrays in PHP - anectodes and reflections
January 07, 2008 @ 08:41:00

On the ProDevTips website today, there's a new article looking at the sorting of arrays, specifically of the two- and three-dimensional sort.

One of the many problems with PHP that detractors are eager to point out is the fact that the language has thousands of global functions. Without the awesome CHM version of the PHP manual - finding your way in this jungle would be a mess. Simply finding a function like array_multisort is not trivial. And even if you find it, understanding it completely is not trivial either!

Not quite finding what he needed in the array_multisort function built into PHP, the author opts to create his own custom sorting function that make sorting 2D arrays simpler.
