func_get_args

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8)

func_get_args返回一个包含函数参数列表的数组

说明

func_get_args(): array

获取函数参数列表的数组。

该函数可以配合 func_get_arg()func_num_args() 一起使用,从而使得用户自定义函数可以接受自定义个数的参数列表。

参数

此函数没有参数。

返回值

返回一个数组,其中每个元素都是目前用户自定义函数的参数列表的相应元素的副本。

错误/异常

在用户自定义函数外调用则会出现错误警告。

范例

示例 #1 func_get_args() 例子

<?php
function foo()
{
    
$numargs func_num_args();
    echo 
"Number of arguments: $numargs \n";
    if (
$numargs >= 2) {
        echo 
"Second argument is: " func_get_arg(1) . "\n";
    }
    
$arg_list func_get_args();
    for (
$i 0$i $numargs$i++) {
        echo 
"Argument $i is: " $arg_list[$i] . "\n";
    }
}

foo(123);
?>

以上例程会输出:

Number of arguments: 3 
Second argument is: 2
Argument 0 is: 1
Argument 1 is: 2
Argument 2 is: 3

示例 #2 byRef 和 byVal 参数的 func_get_args() 示例

<?php
function byVal($arg) {
    echo 
'As passed     : 'var_export(func_get_args()), PHP_EOL;
    
$arg 'baz';
    echo 
'After change  : 'var_export(func_get_args()), PHP_EOL;
}

function 
byRef(&$arg) {
    echo 
'As passed     : 'var_export(func_get_args()), PHP_EOL;
    
$arg 'baz';
    echo 
'After change  : 'var_export(func_get_args()), PHP_EOL;
}

$arg 'bar';
byVal($arg);
byRef($arg);
?>

以上例程会输出:


As passed : array (
0 => 'bar',
)
After change : array (
0 => 'baz',
)
As passed : array (
0 => 'bar',
)
After change : array (
0 => 'baz',
)

注释

注意:

As of PHP 8.0.0, the func_*() family of functions is intended to be mostly transparent with regard to named arguments, by treating the arguments as if they were all passed positionally, and missing arguments are replaced with their defaults. This function ignores the collection of unknown named variadic arguments. Unknown named arguments which are collected can only be accessed through the variadic parameter.

注意:

如果参数以引用方式传递,函数对该参数的任何改变将在函数返回后保留。As of PHP 7 the current values will also be returned if the arguments are passed by value.

注意: 该函数仅仅是返回传递参数的一个副本,并且不包含没有传入的默认参数。

Simple function to calculate average value using dynamic arguments:
<?php
function average(){
    return
array_sum(func_get_args())/func_num_args();
}
print
average(10, 15, 20, 25); // 17.5

If you want to get the arguments by reference, instead of func_get_args() you can simply use

<?php
function args_byref(&...$args) {
   
// Modify the $args array here
}
?>

Credits should go to Markus Malkusch for pointing this out on Stackoverflow.

You can pass a variable number of arguments to a function whilst keeping references intact by using an array. The disadvantage of course, is that the called function needs to be aware that it's arguments are in an array.

<?php
// Prints "hello mutated world"
function mutator($args=null) {
$n=count($args);
while(
$i<$n) $args[$i++] = "mutated";
}
$a = "hello";
$b = "strange";
$c = "world";
mutator(array($a, &$b, $c));
echo
"$a $b $c";

please note that optional parameters are not seen/passed by func_get_args(), as well as func_get_arg().

ex:

<?php
function testfunc($optional = 'this argument is optional..') {
   
$args = func_get_args();
   
var_dump($args);
    echo
$optional;
}
?>

test case #1:
testfunc('argument no longer optional..');

result for #1:
array(1) {
    [0]=>  string(20) "argument no longer optional.."
}
argument no longer optional..

test case #2:
testfunc('argument no longer optional..','this is an extra argument');

result for #2:
array(2) {
    [0]=>  string(29) "argument no longer optional.."
    [1]=>  string(25) "this is an extra argument"
}
argument no longer optional..

test case #3: -- RESULTS IN AN EMPTY ARRAY
testfunc();

result for #3:
array(0) {
}
this argument is optional..

"Because this function depends on the current scope to determine parameter details, it cannot be used as a function parameter. If you must pass this value, assign the results to a variable, and pass the variable."

This means that the following code generates an error:

<?php

function foo($list)
{
  echo
implode(', ', $list);
}

function
foo2()
{
 
foo(func_get_args());
}

foo2(1, 2, 3);

?>

However, you can easily get around this by doing the following:

<?php

function foo($list)
{
  echo
implode(', ', $list);
}

function
foo2()
{
 
foo($args = func_get_args());
}

foo2(1, 2, 3);

?>

This captures the context from foo2(), making this legal.  You get the expected output:

"1, 2, 3"

it seems that this function only returns a copy and loses it's byref information, use this dirty non-efficient workaround instead:

at the moment of writing it currently returns all of them as references, instead of only the ones who are passed that way...

<?php
function func_get_args_byref() {
       
$trace = debug_backtrace();
        return
$trace[1]['args'];
}
?>
