The Ds\Map::remove() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to remove and return a value by key.

  • $default: It is optional parameter and it returns if key not found.

Return Value: This function returns the value that was removed.

Below programs illustrate the Ds\Map::remove() function in PHP:

Example 1:




<?php 
  
// Declare new Map 
$map = new \Ds\Map([
    1 => "geeks",
    2 => "for"
    3 => "geeks",
    4 => "DataStructures"
]); 
  
echo("Map Elements\n"); 
  
// Display the map elements 
print_r($map); 
  
echo("\nRemoved element of the map: \n"); 
  
// Use remove() function to remove 
// value at index 3 and return it 
var_dump($map->remove(3)); 
  
?>
Output:
Map Elements
Ds\Map Object
(
    [0] => Ds\Pair Object
        (
            [key] => 1
            [value] => geeks
        )

    [1] => Ds\Pair Object
        (
            [key] => 2
            [value] => for
        )

    [2] => Ds\Pair Object
        (
            [key] => 3
            [value] => geeks
        )

    [3] => Ds\Pair Object
        (
            [key] => 4
            [value] => DataStructures
        )

)

Removed element of the map: 
string(5) "geeks"

Example:




<?php 
  
// Declare new Map 
$map = new \Ds\Map([
    "a" => "geeks",
    "b" => "for"
    "c" => "geeks",
    "d" => "DataStructures"
]); 
  
echo("Map Elements\n"); 
  
// Display the map elements 
print_r($map); 
  
echo("\nRemoved element of the map: \n"); 
  
// Use remove() function to remove 
// value at index 3 and return it 
var_dump($map->remove("c")); 
  
?>
Output:

            [value] => geeks
        )

    [3] => Ds\Pair Object
        (

            [value] => DataStructures
        )
