rsort -- Sort an array in reverse order


bool rsort ( array &array [, int sort_flags])

This function sorts an array in reverse order (highest to lowest).

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Example 1. rsort() example

= array("lemon", "orange", "banana", "apple");
while (list(
$key, $val) = each($fruits)) {
"$key = $val\n";

This example would display:

0 = orange
1 = lemon
2 = banana
3 = apple

The fruits have been sorted in reverse alphabetical order.

You may modify the behavior of the sort using the optional parameter sort_flags, for details see sort().
