PHP SplHeap valid() Function

  • Last Updated : 18 May, 2021

The SplHeap::valid() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to check whether the heap contains more nodes.

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.

Syntax:

bool SplHeap::valid()

Parameters: This function does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: This function returns true if the heap contains any more nodes, false otherwise. 



Below programs illustrate the SplHeap::valid() function in PHP:

Example 1:

PHP




<?php 
  
// Create a new empty Min Heap 
$heap = new SplMinHeap(); 
  
$heap->insert('System'); 
$heap->insert('GFG'); 
$heap->insert('ALGO'); 
$heap->insert('C');
$heap->insert('Geeks'); 
$heap->insert('GeeksforGeeks'); 
  
// Loop to display the current element of heap
for ($heap->top(); $heap->valid(); $heap->next()) {
    echo $heap->current() . "\n";
}
  
?>
Output
ALGO
C
GFG
Geeks
GeeksforGeeks
System

Example 2:

PHP




<?php 
  
// Create a new empty Max Heap 
$heap = new SplMaxHeap(); 
  
$heap->insert('System'); 
$heap->insert('GFG'); 
$heap->insert('ALGO'); 
$heap->insert('C');
$heap->insert('Geeks'); 
$heap->insert('GeeksforGeeks'); 
  
// Loop to display the current element of heap
for ($heap->top(); $heap->valid(); $heap->next()) {
    echo $heap->current() . "\n";
}
  
?>
Output
System
GeeksforGeeks
Geeks
GFG
C
ALGO
