Examples

Example #1 ArrayObject::natcasesort() example

<?php$array = array('IMG0.png', 'img12.png', 'img10.png', 'img2.png', 'img1.png', 'IMG3.png');$arr1 = new ArrayObject($array);$arr2 = clone $arr1;$arr1->asort();echo "Standard sorting\n";print_r($arr1);$arr2->natcasesort();echo "\nNatural order sorting (case-insensitive)\n";print_r($arr2);?>

The above example will output:


Standard sorting
ArrayObject Object
(
    [0] => IMG0.png
    [5] => IMG3.png
    [4] => img1.png
    [2] => img10.png
    [1] => img12.png
    [3] => img2.png
)

Natural order sorting (case-insensitive)
ArrayObject Object
(
    [0] => IMG0.png
    [4] => img1.png
    [3] => img2.png
    [5] => IMG3.png
    [2] => img10.png
    [1] => img12.png
)
