PHP | SplHeap current() Function
  • Last Updated : 28 Jun, 2019

The SplHeap::current() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to get the current element pointed by the iterator.

Generally, the Heap Data Structure are of two types:

  • Max-Heap: In a Max-Heap the key present at the root node must be greatest among the keys present at all of its children. The same property must be recursively true for all sub-trees in that Binary Tree.
  • Min-Heap: In a Min-Heap the key present at the root node must be minimum among the keys present at all of its children. The same property must be recursively true for all sub-trees in that Binary Tree.

Note: This article uses Max Heap which extends the SplHeap class.

Syntax:

mixed SplMaxHeap::current()

Parameters: This function does not accept any parameter.



Return Value: This function returns current node of heap data structure.

Below programs illustrate the SplMaxHeap::current() function in PHP:

Program 1:




<?php
  
// Create a new empty Max Heap
$heap = new SplMaxHeap();
  
$heap->insert('System');
$heap->insert('gfg');
$heap->insert('ALGO');
$heap->insert('C');
  
// Move next node
$heap->next();
$heap->next();
  
echo $heap->current() . "\n";
?>
Output:
C

Program 2:




<?php
   
// Create a new empty Max Heap
$heap = new SplMaxHeap();
   
$heap->insert('GEEKS');
$heap->insert('gfg');
$heap->insert('DSA');
$heap->insert('ALGO');
$heap->insert('C');
  
// Iterate array and print values
while($heap->valid()) {
       
    // Print current value of index of the array
    echo $heap->current(). "\n";
       
    // Move next each time of iteration
    $heap->next();
}
  
?>
Output:
gfg
GEEKS
DSA
C
ALGO
