#### [ Array->Remove ]

Method

[array->remove] removes an item from the array.

Accepts a single integer parameter identifying the position of the item to be removed. Defaults to the last item in the array. An optional length parameter may be added which specifies how many items are to be removed from the array beginning with the one specified (ie. array->remove(2,1) is the same as array->remove(2). )

The first element in an array is at position 1. An error is returned if the position specified is beyond the size of the array or if the sum of the number of elements to be removed and the position of the starting element is more than the size of the array.

Note: The specified element(s) in the array is(are) removed and the positions of all elements in the array above the position are adjusted down as required.

Example 2:

Code

``````var( DaysOfWeek = array('Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thu', 'Fri', 'Sat') )

\$DaysOfWeek->remove(3,3)
\$DaysOfWeek``````

Result

`array(Sun, Mon, Fri, Sat)`
