PHP range() 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 range() Function.

The PHP range() function returns an array of elements from low to high, inclusive. If the low parameter is greater than the high parameter, the sequence will be from high to low.


Following below is the syntax to use this function -

range ( $low, $high [, $step] );

Parameter Details

Sr.NoParameter & Description


This is a lower range of the array



This is a upper range of the array



Steps to increase array element. By default it is 1

Return Value

This function returns an array of elements.


Try out the below example -

   foreach (range(0, 6) as $number) {
      echo "$number, ";
   print "\n";
   foreach (range(0, 100, 10) as $number) {
      echo "$number, ";
   print "\n";
   foreach (range('a', 'c') as $letter) {
      echo "$letter, ";
   print "\n";
   foreach (range('f', 'a') as $letter) {
      echo "$letter, ";
   print "\n";


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

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,
0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100
