PHP Array Exercises : Combine two arrays

PHP Array: Exercise-58 with Solution

Write a PHP script to combine (using one array for keys and another for its values) the following two arrays.

('x', 'y', 'y'), (10, 20, 30)

Sample Solution:

PHP Code:

<?php
function combine_Array($keys, $values)
{
    $result = array();
    foreach ($keys as $i => $k) {
        $result[$k][] = $values[$i];
    }
    array_walk($result, function (&$v) {
        $v = (count($v) == 1) ? array_pop($v) : $v;
    });
    return $result;
}
$array1 = array('x', 'y', 'y');
$array2 = array(10, 20, 30);
print_r(combine_Array($array1, $array2));
?>

Sample Output:

Array
(
    [x] => 10
    [y] => Array
        (
            [0] => 20
            [1] => 30
        )

)
