  • count array elements

    There also a nice but undocumented count() operator.
    {def $arr = array(1,2,3,4)}

  • sort arrays

    There is no sort function built in (EZ 3.8.3), but there is a nice extension which provides template operators for most PHP array sort functions here:
  • Just for easy reference:

    You can access an element in an array as follows: (Copied from "variable usage" from the manual)

    {def $sentence=array( 'Life', 'is', 'very', 'good!' )}

    The 1st element is: {$sentence.0} <br />
    The 2nd element is: {$sentence.1} <br />
    The 3rd element is: {$sentence[2]} <br />
    The 4th element is: {$sentence[3]} <br />
