// Declare an ArrayIterator
$arr1 = new ArrayIterator(array('G', 'e', 'e', 'k', 's'));
  
// Create a new AppendIterator
$itr = new AppendIterator;
  
// Append the ArrayIterator element
$itr->append($arr1);
  
// Display the result
while ($itr->valid()) {
    echo "ArrayIterator Key: " . $itr->key() .
    "  ArrayIterator Value: " . $itr->current() . "\n";
      
    $itr->next();
}
  
?>
Output:
ArrayIterator Key: 0  ArrayIterator Value: G
ArrayIterator Key: 1  ArrayIterator Value: e
ArrayIterator Key: 2  ArrayIterator Value: e
ArrayIterator Key: 3  ArrayIterator Value: k
ArrayIterator Key: 4  ArrayIterator Value: s

Program 2:




<?php
  
// Declare an ArrayIterator
$arr1 = new ArrayIterator(
    array(
        "a" => "Geeks",
        "b" => "for",

$arr2 = new ArrayIterator(
    array(

// Create a new AppendIterator
$itr = new AppendIterator;
$itr->append($arr1);
$itr->append($arr2);
  
$itr->rewind();
  
// Display the result
while ($itr->valid()) {
    echo "ArrayIterator Key: " . $itr->key() .
    "  ArrayIterator Value: " . $itr->current() . "\n";
      
    $itr->next();
}
  
?>
Output:
ArrayIterator Key: a  ArrayIterator Value: Geeks
ArrayIterator Key: b  ArrayIterator Value: for
ArrayIterator Key: c  ArrayIterator Value: Geeks
ArrayIterator Key: x  ArrayIterator Value: Computer
ArrayIterator Key: y  ArrayIterator Value: Science
