callback function return returnvar 1 using -'php,bitwise-operators'
callback function return returnvar 1 Â using -'php,bitwise-operators'
I have read the PHP Manuel about array_filter
<?php
function odd($var)
{
Â Â Â Â // returns whether the input integer is odd
Â Â Â Â return($var & 1);
}
function even($var)
{
Â Â Â Â // returns whether the input integer is even
Â Â Â Â return(!($var & 1));
}
$array1 = array("a"=>1, "b"=>2, "c"=>3, "d"=>4, "e"=>5);
$array2 = array(6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12);
echo "Odd :\n";
print_r(array_filter($array1, "odd"));
echo "Even:\n";
print_r(array_filter($array2, "even"));
?>
Even I see the result here :
Odd :
Array
(
Â Â Â Â [a] => 1
Â Â Â Â [c] => 3
Â Â Â Â [e] => 5
)
Even:
Array
(
Â Â Â Â [0] => 6
Â Â Â Â [2] => 8
Â Â Â Â [4] => 10
Â Â Â Â [6] => 12
)
But I did not understand about this line: return($var & 1); Could anyone explain me about this?

$var & 1 - is bitwise AND it checks if $var is ODD value 0 & 0 = 0, 0 & 1 = 0, 1 & 0 = 0, 1 & 1 = 1 so, first callback function returns TRUE only if $var is ODD, and second - vise versa (! - is logical NOT).

& it's the bitwise operator. It does the AND with the corrispondent bit of $var and 1 Basically it test the last bit of $var to see if the number is even or odd Example with $var binary being 000110 and 1 000110 & 1 ------ 0 0 (false) in this case is returned so the number is even, and your function returns false accordingly

It is performing a bitwise AND with $var and 1. Since 1 only has the last bit set, $var & 1 will only be true if the last bit is set in $var. And since even numbers never have the last bit set, if the AND is true the number must be odd.

You know && is AND, but what you probably don't know is & is a bit-wise AND. The & operator works at a bit level, it is bit-wise. You need to think in terms of the binary representations of the operands. e.g. 710 & 210 = 1112 & 0102 = 0102 = 210 For instance, the expression $var & 1 is used to test if the least significant bit is 1 or 0, odd or even respectively. $var & 1 010 & 110 = 0002 & 0012 = 0002 = 010 = false (even) 110 & 110 = 0012 & 0012 = 0012 = 110 = true (odd) 210 & 110 = 0102 & 0012 = 0002 = 010 = false (even) 310 & 110 = 0112 & 0012 = 0012 = 110 = true (odd) 410 & 210 = 1002 & 0012 = 0002 = 010 = false (even) and so on...

& is bitwise "and" operator. With 1, 3, 5 (and other odd numbers) $var & 1 will result in "1", with 0, 2, 4 (and other even numbers) - in "0".

An odd number has its zeroth (least significant) bit set to 1: v 0 = 00000000b 1 = 00000001b 2 = 00000010b 3 = 00000011b ^ The expression $var & 1 performs a bitwise AND operation between $var and 1 (1 = 00000001b). So the expression will return: 1 when $var has its zeroth bit set to 1 (odd number) 0 when $var has its zeroth bit set to 0 (even number)

& is a bitwise AND on $var. If $var is a decimal 4, it's a binary 100. 100 & 1 is 100, because the right most digit is a 0 in $var - and 0 & 1 is 0, thus, 4 is even.

it returns 0 or 1, depending on your $var if $var is odd number, ex. (1, 3, 5 ...) it $var & 1 returns 1, otherwise (2, 4, 6) $var & 1 returns 0
