How to convert an array into object using stdClass() in PHP?

To convert an array into the object, stdClass() is used. The stdClass() is an empty class, which is used to cast other types to object. If an object is converted to object, its not modified. But, if object type is converted/type-casted an instance of stdClass is created, if it is not NULL. If it is NULL, the new instance will be empty.

        if (is_array($value)) {
            $value = ToObject($value);
        }
        $object->$key = $value;
    }
    return $object;
}
  
// Declare an array and initialize it
$Original = array (
