PHP list() Function

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

Just like array, this is not really a function, but a language construct. list() is used for assigning 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 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
