Array_splice function can be used to insert, delete and replace any position
array array_splice ( array &$input , int $offset [, int $length = count($input) [, mixed $replacement = array() ]] )
|offset||If offset is positive, it is removed from the input array at the offset specified by the value. If the offset is negative, it is removed from the end of input by counting down the offset specified by the value.|
|length||If length is omitted, all parts of the array from offset to the end are removed. If length is specified and is a positive value, remove so many cells. If length is specified and is negative, all cells from offset to the last reciprocal length of the array are removed. If length is set to zero, cells are not removed. Tip: when a replacement is given to remove all cells from offset to the end of the array, count ($input) is used as the length.|
|replacement||If a replacement array is given, the removed cells are replaced by the cells in the array.|
If the combination of offset and length does not remove any values, the cells in the replacement array are inserted at the location specified by offset. Note that the key names in the replacement array are not reserved.
If there is only one cell to replace a replacement, you do not need to add array () to it unless the cell itself is an array, an object, or null.
<?php $input = array("red", "green", "blue", "yellow"); $x = "black"; $y = "purple"; //Add two new elements to $input array_push($input, $x, $y); array_splice($input, count($input), 0, array($x, $y)); //Remove the last element in $input array_pop($input); array_splice($input, -1); //Remove the first element in $input array_shift($input); array_splice($input, 0, 1); //Insert an element at the beginning of $input array_unshift($input, $x, $y); array_splice($input, 0, 0, array($x, $y)); //Replace value at index $X of $input $input [$x] = $Y; // for arrays with key names and offset equivalents array_splice($input, $x, 1, $y);
