The Ds\Set::slice() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to return the sub-set of given range.

Syntax:

Ds\Set Ds\Set::slice( $index, $length )

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:



  • $index: This parameter holds the starting index of sub-set. The index value can be positive and negative. If the index value is positive then it starts at the index of the set and if the index value is negative then set starts from ends.
