PHP | Ds\Vector allocate() Function

  • Last Updated : 22 Aug, 2019

The Ds\Vector::allocate() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to allocate enough memory for a required capacity. It provides the custom size of the vector to allocate space.

Syntax:

void public Ds\Vector::allocate( $capacity ) 

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter $capacity which holds the space to be allocated.

Note: Capacity will remain the same if this value is less than or equal to the current capacity.

Return Value: This function does not return any value.



Below programs illustrate the Ds\Vector::allocate() function in PHP:

Program 1:




<?php
  
// Declare new vector
$vector = new \Ds\Vector();
  
echo("Allocated Space is: ");
  
// Use capacity() function
var_dump($vector->capacity());
  
echo("Allocated space is: ");
  
// Use allocate() function to 
// allocate capacity
$vector->allocate(50);
  
// Display the allocated vector
// capacity
var_dump($vector->capacity());
  
?> 

Output:

Allocated Space is: int(8)
Allocated space is: int(50)

Program 2:




<?php
  
// Declare new vector
$vector = new \Ds\Vector();
  
echo("Allocated Space is: ");
  
// Use capacity() function
var_dump($vector->capacity());
  
echo("Allocated space is: ");
  
// Use allocate() function to 
// allocate capacity
$vector->allocate(5);
  
// Display the Vector capacity
var_dump($vector->capacity());
  
// Use allocate() function to 
// allocate capacity
$vector->allocate(120);
  
// Display the Vector capacity
var_dump($vector->capacity());
?> 

Output:

Allocated Space is: int(8)
Allocated space is: int(8)
int(120)
