The final array function in this group is array_filter(), which is a very powerful function that allows you to filter elements through a function you specify. If the function returns true, the item makes it into the array that is returned, otherwise it is not. Consider this script:
In this script we have an array of people, most of which have a name ending with "y". However, several do not, and for one reason or another we want to have a list of people whose names ends in "y", so array_filter() is used. The function endswithy() will return true if the last letter of each array value ends with a y, otherwise false. By passing that as the second parameter to array_filter(), it will be called once for every array element, passing in the value of the element as the parameter to endswithy(), where it is checked for a "y" at the end.
