Associative Array: Associative arrays are used to store key-value pairs. For example, to store the marks of the different subject of a student in an array, a numerically indexed array would not be the best choice. Instead, we could use the respective subject’s names as the keys in our associative array, and the value would be their respective marks gained. In associative array, the key-value pairs are associated with => symbol.
Method 1: In this method, traverse the entire associative array using foreach loop and display the key elements.
Program: Program to loop through associative array and print keys.
Key: Rajnish Key: Sanjeev Key: Ravi Key: Yash Key: Suraj
Method 2: Using array_keys() function: The array_keys() is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to return either all the keys of array or the subset of the keys.
array array_keys( $input_array, $search_value, $strict )
Program: Below program illustrate the use of array_keys() function to accessing the keys of associative array.
