Here is how to delete the last element from an associative array in PHP.
PHP supports a predefined function array_shift(), which helps us to delete the first element from an associative array.
Syntax of array_shift() function is given below:
The below is an example for deleting the first element from an associative array $a.
<html> <body> <?php $a=array("person1"=>"amit","person2"=>"tarak","person3"=>"monali","person4"=>"raja"); array_shift($a); print_r($a); ?> </body> </html>
Output:Array ( [person2] => tarak [person3] => monali [person4] => raja )
The associative array $a is containg 4 elements. The first element is deleted using the function array_shift(). After deleting the first element, the associative array $a is containing 3 elements and the function print_r is using to print the associative array $a.
