NAME

allocate() - allocate an array

SYNOPSIS

varargs mixed *allocate( int size, void | mixed value );

DESCRIPTION

Allocate an array of <size> elements. The number of elements must be
>= 0 and not bigger than a system maximum (usually ~10000). All elements
are initialized to 0 by default.

If the optional second argument is provided, the values are initialized
to that argument, unless the second argument is a functional. In that case,
the functional will be evaluated for each array element, with the first
argument passed to the functional being the number of the array element.

Example

allocate( 5, (: $1 + 3 :) ) => ({ 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 })

SEE ALSO

sizeof(3), allocate_mapping(3)
