PHP list() Function

Hello folks! welcome back to a new section of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP list() Function.

Like array, this is not really a function, but a language construct. list() in PHP is used to assign a list of variables in one operation.


Following below is the syntax to use this function -

list ( $var1, $var2, $var3.. )

Parameter Details

Sr.NoParameter & Description


The first variable to assign a value to



The second variable to assign a value to



The third variable to assign a value to

Return Value

This function does not return anything.


Try out the below example -

   $fruit = array("mango","apple","banana");
   list($a, $b, $c) = $fruit;
   echo "I have several fruits, a $a, a $b, and a $c.";


When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

I have several fruits, a mango, a apple, and a banana
