func_get_args — Gets an array of all arguments passed to a function.


array func_get_args(void)


Array containing all of the arguments passed to a function; FALSE if func_get_args() is called in global scope


func_get_args() returns an array containing the list of arguments passed to a user-defined function. Like func_get_arg() , this function allows the programmer to easily create functions that accept variable-length argument lists.


Unlike most functions, func_get_args() cannot always be used as an argument for some functions. It's better to assign the output of func_get_args() to a variable and then use the variable as the argument for a function.

Example 381. Demonstrate how func_get_args() works

function demo () {
    $num_args = func_num_args ();

    if ($num_args == 0) {
        print "The function was passed no arguments.<br /><br />";

    print "The function was passed $num_args argument(s): <blockquote>";
    $args = func_get_args ();

    foreach ($args as $offset => $value)
        printf ('Argument %d (Offset %d): %s<br />', $offset +1, $offset, $value);

    print '</blockquote><br />';

demo ();
demo ('Mango Chutney');
demo ('Chutneys', 'Mint', 'Mango', 'Coriander', 'Ginger');
demo ('Yummy East Indian Meal', array ('Chutney' => 'Mint', 'Bread' => 'Chappati'));

// Chutney (Anglicized version of the Hindi word catni)
// A chutney is a delectable and pungent relish of fruits, spices and herbs.
// Interestingly, the Hindi word for chutney is derived from the Hindi verb for 
// 'to taste'.
