array_udiff — Computes the difference of arrays by using a callback function for data comparison


array array_udiff ( array $array1 , array $array2 [, array $ ... ], callback $data_compare_func )

array_udiff() returns an array containing all the values of array1 that are not present in any of the other arguments. Note that keys are preserved. For the comparison of the data data_compare_func is used. It must return an integer less than, equal to, or greater than zero if the first argument is considered to be respectively less than, equal to, or greater than the second. This is unlike array_diff() which uses an internal function for comparing the data.

Example#1 array_udiff() example

class cr {
$this->priv_member $val;

        if (
$a->priv_member === $b->priv_member) return 0;
        return (
$a->priv_member $b->priv_member)? 1:-1;
$a = array("0.1" => new cr(9), "0.5" => new cr(12), => new cr(23), 1=> new cr(4), => new cr(-15),);
$b = array("0.2" => new cr(9), "0.5" => new cr(22), => new cr(3), 1=> new cr(4), => new cr(-15),);

$result array_udiff($a$b, array("cr""comp_func_cr"));

The above example will output:

Array ( [0.5] => cr Object ( [priv_member:private] => 12 ) [0] => cr Object ( [priv_member:private] => 23 ) )

Note: Please note that this function only checks one dimension of a n-dimensional array. Of course you can check deeper dimensions by using array_udiff($array1[0], $array2[0], "data_compare_func");.
