The Ds\Deque::slice() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to return a sub-Deque which contains elements of the Deque within the index range. Syntax:
public Ds\Deque::slice( $index, $length ) : Ds\Deque
Parameters: This function accept two parameters as mentioned above and described below:
  • index: This parameter hold the starting index of sub Deque. The index value can be positive and negative. If the index value is positive then it starts at the index of Deque and if the index value is negative then Deque starts from ends.
  • length: This parameter holds the length of sub Deque. This parameter can take positive and negative values. If length is positive then sub-Deque size is equal to a given length and if the length is negative then Deque will stop that many values from the ends.
Return Value: This function returns a sub-Deque with sliced elements from the Deque of given range. Below programs illustrate the Ds\Deque::slice() function in PHP: Program 1:
<?php
  
// Declare a deque
$deck = new \Ds\Deque([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]);
  
echo("Elements of Deque\n");
  
// Display the Deque elements
print_r($deck);
  
// Slicing deque from 2 to 5
$deck_new = $deck->slice(2, 5);
   
echo("\nDeque after slicing:\n");
  
// Display the Deque elements
print_r($deck_new);
  
?>

                    
Output:
Elements of Deque
Ds\Deque Object
(
    [0] => 1
    [1] => 2
    [2] => 3
    [3] => 4
    [4] => 5
    [5] => 6
)

Deque after slicing:
Ds\Deque Object
(
    [0] => 3
    [1] => 4
    [2] => 5
    [3] => 6
)
Program 2:
<?php
  
// Declare a deque
$deck = new \Ds\Deque([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]);
  
echo("Elements of Deque\n");
  
// Display the Deque elements
print_r($deck);
  
// Slicing deque from 3 to -2
$deck_new = $deck->slice(3, -2);
   
echo("\nDeque after slicing:\n");
  
// Display the Deque elements
print_r($deck_new);
  
?>

                    
Output:
Elements of Deque
Ds\Deque Object
(
    [0] => 1
    [1] => 2
    [2] => 3
    [3] => 4
    [4] => 5
    [5] => 6
)

Deque after slicing:
Ds\Deque Object
(
    [0] => 4
)
