Examples

Example #1 LimitIterator usage example

<?php

// Create an iterator to be limited
$fruits = new ArrayIterator(array(
    
'apple',
    
'banana',
    
'cherry',
    
'damson',
    
'elderberry'
));

// Loop over first three fruits only
foreach (new LimitIterator($fruits03) as $fruit) {
    
var_dump($fruit);
}

echo 
"\n";

// Loop from third fruit until the end
// Note: offset starts from zero for apple
foreach (new LimitIterator($fruits2) as $fruit) {
    
var_dump($fruit);
}

?>

The above example will output:

string(5) "apple"
string(6) "banana"
string(6) "cherry"

string(6) "cherry"
string(6) "damson"
string(10) "elderberry"
