The list construct in PHP allows us an easy assignment of values that belong to array into variabels in our code. The list construct is highly useful when developing code that works with a relational database. The following code sample shows a simple usage for the list construct.
<?php $vec = [2=>"dave",1=>"ron",0=>"chen",3=>"ran"]; list($a,$b,$c) = $vec; echo "<br>a=$a"; echo "<br>b=$b"; echo "<br>c=$c"; ?>
The following video clip shows the execution of this code sample, overviews it and explains it.
