The Ds\Map::diff() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to create a map using the key which contains the elements of the first map which are not present in another map. Syntax:

 public Ds\Map::diff( $map )

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter $map which is used to hold the map elements whose value need to be excluded. Return value: It returns a new map containing the elements of the first map which are not present in another map. Below programs illustrate the Ds\Map::diff() function in PHP: Program 1: 

php




<?php
// PHP program to illustrate the diff()
// function of Ds\map
 
// Creating a Map
$map1 = new \Ds\Map(["1" => "10",
            "3" => 30, "4" => 40]);
             
// Creating another Map
$map2 = new \Ds\Map(["2" => "20",
        "3" => 35, "5" => 50, "6" => 60]);
 
echo "Difference between two map: <br>";
 
print_r($map1 -> diff($map2));
 
?>


Output:

Difference between two map: 
Ds\Map Object
(
    [0] => Ds\Pair Object
        (
            [key] => 1
            [value] => 10
        )

    [1] => Ds\Pair Object
        (
            [key] => 4
            [value] => 40
        )

)

<?php
// PHP program to illustrate the diff()
// function of Ds\map
 
// Creating a Map
$map1 = new \Ds\Map([
    "1" => "Geeks",

    "3" => "Geeks"]);
             
// Creating another Map
$map2 = new \Ds\Map([
    "2" => "for",
    "3" => "Geeks",
    "4" => "GeeksforGeeks"]);
 
echo "Difference between two map: <br>";
 
print_r($map1 -> diff($map2));
