Serialize

Generates a storable representation of an array (or object)
 
/**
 * serialize, unserialize()
 * 
 * Storabale representation (string) for an array
 */

$data = ['name'=>'Smith', 'age'=>30];
$encoded = serialize($data);
$decoded = unserialize($encoded);

print_r($encoded); // a:2:{s:4:"name";s:5:"Smith";s:3:"age";i:30;}
print_r($decoded); // [name] => Smith [age] => 30

Json

Encode returns a string containing the json representation.
 
/**
 * Encode anaray, json representation
 */

$A = ['a'=>1, 'b'=>2, 'c'=>3];
$json_encoded = json_encode($A);
$json_decoded = json_decode($json_encoded);

print_r($json_encoded); // {"a":1,"b":2,"c":3}
print_r($json_decoded); // [a=>1, b=>2, c=>3]

Parse ini

Parse a configuration file conf.ini
 
/**
 * parse_ini_file()
 * 
 * inc/config.ini:
 *  
 * url_base = "api.com/RestApi/v1/"
 * ssl_verifyhost = 2
 * auth_type = "token"
 */

$conf = parse_ini_file(__DIR__ . '/inc/config.ini');

var_dump($conf['ssl_verifyhost'] == 2);  // true
var_dump($conf['auth_type'] == 'token'); // true
