PHP list() function

Php list() function to assign to the variables to the array.

$user = ['mark Thomas', ''];

list($name, $email) = $user;

$email = $user[1];

PHP compact() function

compact() function to create quickly an array using key as the variable name.

$name = 'mark Thomas';

$email = '';

compact('name', 'email');
