Config_Container::toArray

Config_Container::toArray() – Return key/value pair array of container and its children

Synopsis

require_once 'Config/Container.php';

array Config_Container::toArray ( void )

Description

This method returns an array representation of the Config tree. The format is

<?php
$section
[directive][index] = value
?>

If the container has attributes, it will use '@' as key for attributes and '#' for values. index is here because multiple directives and sections can have the same name, the toArray() method takes care of that.

Return value

array - an array representation of the Config_Container tree

Note

This function can not be called statically.

Example

Using toArray()()

<?php
$attributes 
= array('id' => 'db''language' => 'en');
     
$section =& new Config_Container('section''main'null$attributes);
     
$section->createDirective('authentication''one', array('type' => 'mysql'));
     
$section->createDirective('authentication''two', array('type' => 'oracle'));
     
$section->createDirective('permission''group');
     
var_dump($section->toArray());
?>

Resulting array with attributes and directives with same name or not


array(1) {
  ["main"]=>
  array(3) {
    ["@"]=>
    array(2) {
      ["id"]=>
