Example #1 arsort() example

<?php
$fruits 
= array("d" => "lemon""a" => "orange""b" => "banana""c" => "apple");
arsort($fruits);
foreach (
$fruits as $key => $val) {
    echo 
"$key = $val\n";
}
?>

The above example will output:

a = orange
d = lemon
b = banana
c = apple

The fruits have been sorted in reverse alphabetical order, and the index associated with each element has been maintained.
