I am creating an array and want to delete the first element of the array and re-index it. From what I can tell, array_shift() is the right solution. However, it is not working in my implementation.
I have a member variable of my class that is defined as an array called $waypoint_city. Here is the variable output prior to shifting the array:
Array (  =>  => JACKSONVILLE  => ORLANDO  => MONTGOMERY  => MEMPHIS )
If I do the following, I get the correct result:
Array (  => JACKSONVILLE  => ORLANDO  => MONTGOMERY  => MEMPHIS )
However, if I try to reassign the result to the member variable it doesn't work... Anyone know why that is?
$this->waypoint_city = array_shift($this->waypoint_city);
If I try to print_r($this->waypoint_city) it looks like nothing is in there. Thanks to anyone who can save the hair that I haven't pulled out, yet.
array_shift[docs] changes the array in-place. It returns the first element (which is empty in your case):
Returns the shifted value, or
NULLif array is empty or is not an array.
