Return Value: This function returns the first element from the Deque, if the deque is not empty.

Below programs illustrate the Ds\Deque::first() function in PHP:



Program 1:




<?php
  
// Declare a deque
$deck = new \Ds\Deque([10, 20, 3, 40, 50, 6]);
  
echo("Elements in the Deque\n");
  
// Display the Deque elements
print_r($deck);
  
echo("\nFirst element in the deque: ");
  
// Use first() function to find
// first element in the deque
var_dump($deck->first());
  
?>
