count

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8)

countBir dizideki veya bir Countable nesnesindeki eleman sayısını döndürür

Açıklama

count(Countable|array $girdi, int $kip = COUNT_NORMAL): int

Bir dizi belirtilirse dizideki eleman sayısını döndürür. Countable arayüzünü gerçekleyen bir nesne belirtilirse Countable::count() yönteminin dönüş değerini döndürür.

Değiştirgeler

girdi

Dizi veya Countable nesnesi.

kip

İsteğe bağlı kip değiştirgesine COUNT_RECURSIVE (veya 1) atanırsa, count() işlevi diziyi ardışık olarak sayar. Böylece çok boyutlu bir dizinin bütün elemanları sayılabilir. count() sonsuz iç içeliği algılayacak yetenekte değildir.

Dikkat

count() işlevi sonsuz döngüden kaçınmak için iç içeliği saptayabilir, fakat bunu her yaptığında (dizinin kendisini birden fazla içerdiği durumda) bir E_WARNING çıktılar ve beklenenden daha yüksek bir miktar döndürür.

Dönen Değerler

girdi'deki eleman sayısını döndürür. PHP 8.0.0 öncesinde girdi bir dizi veya Countable arayüzü ile gerçeklenmiş bir nesne değilse 1 dönerdi, girdi'nin null olması durumunda ise 0 dönerdi.

Sürüm Bilgisi

Sürüm: Açıklama
8.0.0 değer değiştirgesine geçerli olmayan sayılabilir türler aktarıldığında işlev artık bir TypeError yavruluyor.
7.2.0 değer değiştirgesine geçerli olmayan sayılabilir türler aktarıldığında işlev artık bir uyarı çıktılıyor.

Örnekler

Örnek 1 - count() örneği

<?php
$a
[0] = 1;
$a[1] = 3;
$a[2] = 5;
+
$b[0]  = 7;
+
$b[5]  = 9;
+
$b[10] = 11;
+
var_dump(count($b));
?>

Yukarıdaki örneğin çıktısı:

int(3)
int(3)

Örnek 2 - count() geçersiz Countable|array örneği (kötü örnek - yapmaktan sakının)

<?php
$b
[0]  = 7;
$b[5]  = 9;
$b[10] = 11;
var_dump(count($b));

var_dump(count(null));

var_dump(count(false));
?>

Yukarıdaki örneğin çıktısı:

int(3)
int(0)
int(1)

Yukarıdaki örneğin PHP 7.2 çıktısı::

int(3)

Warning: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in … on line 12
int(0)

Warning: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in … on line 14
int(1)

Yukarıdaki örneğin PHP 8 çıktısı:

int(3)

Fatal error: Uncaught TypeError: count(): Argument #1 ($var) must be of type Countable .. on line 12

var_dump(count($foodCOUNT_RECURSIVE));

// normal sayım
var_dump(count($food));

?>

Yukarıdaki örneğin çıktısı:

int(8)
int(2)

Örnek 4 - Countable nesnesi

<?php
class CountOfMethods implements Countable
{
    private function 
someMethod()

    }

    public function 
count(): int
    
{
        return 
count(get_class_methods($this));
    }

[Editor's note: array at from dot pl had pointed out that count() is a cheap operation; however, there's still the function call overhead.]

If you want to run through large arrays don't use count() function in the loops , its a over head in performance,  copy the count() value into a variable and use that value in loops for a better performance.

Eg:

// Bad approach

for($i=0;$i<count($some_arr);$i++)
{
    // calculations
}

// Good approach

$arr_length = count($some_arr);
for($i=0;$i<$arr_length;$i++)
{
    // calculations
}

For a Non Countable Objects

$count = count($data);
print "Count: $count\n";

Warning:  count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in example.php on line 159

#Quick fix is to just cast the non-countable object as an array.. 

$count = count((array) $data);
print "Count: $count\n";

Count: 250

If you are on PHP 7.2+, you need to be aware of "Changelog" and use something like this:

<?php
$countFruits
= is_array($countFruits) || $countFruits instanceof Countable ? count($countFruits) : 0;
?>

You can organize your code to ensure that the variable is an array, or you can extend the Countable so that you don't have to do this check.

My function returns the number of elements in array for multidimensional arrays subject to depth of array. (Almost COUNT_RECURSIVE, but you can point on which depth you want to plunge).

<?php
 
function getArrCount ($arr, $depth=1) {
      if (!
is_array($arr) || !$depth) return 0;
        
    
$res=count($arr);
        
      foreach (
$arr as $in_ar)
        
$res+=getArrCount($in_ar, $depth-1);
     
      return
$res;
  }
?>

All the previous recursive count solutions with $depth option would not avoid infinite loops in case the array contains itself more than once.
Here's a working solution:

<?php
   
/**
     * Recursively count elements in an array. Behaves exactly the same as native
     * count() function with the $depth option. Meaning it will also add +1 to the
     * total count, for the parent element, and not only counting its children.
     * @param $arr
     * @param int $depth
     * @param int $i (internal)
     * @return int
     */
   
public static function countRecursive(&$arr, $depth = 0, $i = 0) {
       
$i++;
       
/**
         * In case the depth is 0, use the native count function
         */
       
if (empty($depth)) {
            return
count($arr, COUNT_RECURSIVE);
        }
       
$count = 0;
       
/**
         * This can occur only the first time when the method is called and $arr is not an array
         */
       
if (!is_array($arr)) {
            return
count($arr);
        }

       
// if this key is present, it means you already walked this array
       
if (isset($arr['__been_here'])) {
            return
0;
        }

       
$arr['__been_here'] = true;

        foreach (
$arr as $key => &$value) {
            if (
$key !== '__been_here') {
                if (
is_array($value) && $depth > $i) {
                   
$count += self::countRecursive($value, $depth, $i);
                }

               
$count++;
            }
        }

       
// you need to unset it when done because you're working with a reference...
       
unset($arr['__been_here']);
        return
$count;
    }
?>

I actually find the following function more useful when it comes to multidimension arrays when you do not want all levels of the array tree.

// $limit is set to the number of recursions
<?php
function count_recursive ($array, $limit) {
   
$count = 0;
    foreach (
$array as $id => $_array) {
        if (
is_array ($_array) && $limit > 0) {
           
$count += count_recursive ($_array, $limit - 1);
        } else {
           
$count += 1;
        }
    }
    return
$count;
}
?>

A function of one line to find the number of elements that are not arrays, recursively :

function count_elt($array, &$count=0){
  foreach($array as $v) if(is_array($v)) count_elt($v,$count); else ++$count;
  return $count;

Get maxWidth and maxHeight of a two dimensional array..?

Note:
1st dimension = Y (height)
2nd dimension = X (width)
e.g. rows and cols in database result arrays

<?php
$TwoDimensionalArray
= array( 0 => array( 'key' => 'value', ...), ... );
?>

So for Y (maxHeight)
<?php
$maxHeight
= count( $TwoDimensionalArray )
?>

And for X (maxWidth)
<?php
$maxWidth
= max( array_map( 'count'$TwoDimensionalArray ) );
?>

Simple? ;-)

You can not get collect sub array count when there is only one sub array in an array:

$a = array ( array ('a','b','c','d'));
$b = array ( array ('a','b','c','d'), array ('e','f','g','h'));

echo count($a);  // 4 NOT 1, expect 1
echo count($b);  // 2,   expected

to end the debate: count() is the same as empty()

test code below:

results on my computer:

count : double(0.81396999359131)
empty : double(0.81621310710907)

using isset($test[0]) is a bit slower than empty;
test without adding value to the array in function ****Test: still the same.

<?php

function average(array $test)
{
   
$sum = 0;
    foreach(
$test as $value) {
       
$sum += $value;
    }

    return
$sum;
}

function
countTest(array $test)
{
   
$i = 0;
    while (
$i++ < 1000000) {
       
count($test);
       
$test["lol$i"] = "teset$i";
    }
}

function
emptyTest(array $test)
{
   
$i = 0;
    while (
$i++ < 1000000) {
        empty(
$test);
       
$test["lol$i"] = "teset$i";
    }
}

$test = [];
$i = 0;
while (
$i++ < 20000000) {
   
$test[] = $i;
}

$j = 10;
$value = $j;
$count = [];
$isEmpty = [];
while (
$j--) {
   
$time = microtime(true);
   
countTest($test);
   
$count[] = microtime(true) - $time;

   
$time = microtime(true);
   
emptyTest($test);
   
$isEmpty[] = microtime(true) - $time;
}

var_dump(average($count) / $value);
var_dump(average($isEmpty) / $value);

As I see in many codes, don't use count to iterate through array.
Onlyranga says you could declare a variable to store it before the for loop.
I agree with his/her approach, using count in the test should be used ONLY if you have to count the size of the array for each loop.

You can do it in the for loop too, so you don't have to "search" where the variable is set.
e.g.
<?php
    $array
= [1, 5, 'element'];
    for(
$i = 0, $c = count($array); $i < $c; $i++)
       
var_dump($array[$i]);

You can not get collect sub array count when use the key on only one sub array in an array:

$a = array("a"=>"appple", b"=>array('a'=>array(1,2,3),'b'=>array(1,2,3)));
$b = array("a"=>"appple", "b"=>array(array('a'=>array(1,2,3),'b'=>array(1,2,3)), array(1,2,3),'b'=>array(1,2,3)), array('a'=>array(1,2,3),'b'=>array(1,2,3))));

echo count($a['b']);  // 2 NOT 1, expect 1
echo count($b['b']);  // 3,   expected

To get the count of the inner array you can do something like:

$inner_count = count($array[0]);
echo ($inner_count);

About 2d arrays, you have many way to count elements :

<?php
$MyArray
= array ( array(1,2,3),
                  
1,
                  
'a',
                   array(
'a','b','c','d') );

// All elements
echo count($MyArray ,COUNT_RECURSIVE);  // output 11 (9 values + 2 arrays)

// First level elements
echo count($MyArray );                  // output 4 (2 values+ 2 arrays)

// Both level values, but only values
echo(array_sum(array_map('count',$MyArray ))); //output 9 (9 values)

// Only second level values
echo (count($MyArray ,COUNT_RECURSIVE)-count($MyArray )); //output 7 ((all elements) - (first elements))
?>

Criada para contar quantos níveis um array multidimensional possui.

function count_multiLevel($matrix, $_LEVEL = 0){
       
        /* Variáveis de recursão */
        $_COUNT = $_LEVEL;
       
        /* Verifica se o ARRAY foi instanciado */

                /* Loop de elementos da matriz*/
                foreach ($matrix as $elements => $value) {
                   
                    /* Auxiliar para verificação posterior */
                    $_AUX = $_COUNT;

In special situations you might only want to count the first level of the array to figure out how many entries you have, when they have N more key-value-pairs.

<?php

$data
= [
   
'a' => [
       
'bla1' => [
           
0 => 'asdf',
           
1 => 'asdf',
           
2 => 'asdf',
        ],
       
'bla2' => [
           
0 => 'asdf',
           
1 => 'asdf',
           
2 => 'asdf',
        ],
       
'bla3' => [
           
0 => 'asdf',
           
1 => 'asdf',
           
2 => 'asdf',
        ],
       
'bla4' => [
           
0 => 'asdf',
           
1 => 'asdf',

If you want to know the sub-array containing the MAX NUMBER of values in a 3 dimensions array, here is a try (maybe not the nicest way, but it works):

function how_big_is_the_biggest_sub ($array)  {
   // we parse the 1st level
   foreach ($array AS $key => $array_lvl2) {
         //within level 2, we count the 3d levels max
            $lvl2_nb = array_map( 'count',  $array_lvl2) ;
            $max_nb = max($lvl2_nb);
         // we store the matching keys, it might be usefull
            $max_key = array_search($max_nb, $lvl2_nb);
            $max_nb_all[$max_key.'|'.$key] = $max_nb;
        }
       // now we want the max from all levels 2, so one more time
        $real_max = max($max_nb_all);
        $real_max_key = array_search($real_max, $max_nb_all);
        list($real_max_key2, $real_max_key1) = explode('|', $real_max_key);
                // preparing result
        $biggest_sub['max'] = $real_max;
        $biggest_sub['key1'] = $real_max_key1;
        $biggest_sub['key2'] = $real_max_key2;
