change array values

i have an array that looks like this:

$columns = Array
(
[82] => Monday
[91] => Wednesday
[88] => Friday
);

i want to be able to dynamically remove values from $columns if it is Wednesday and then have a new array set called $columns_filtered with the Wednesday value deleted

can anyone please tell me how i can do this?

thanks

i have figured out that i can use unset to remove lines of an array like this:

unset($columns[82]);

this works fine, but what i want to know is if there is anyway to unset it based on the name like for example:

unset($columns[Wednesday]);

i think i have figured it out, i am going to try using array_search to search for the word e.g. wednesday and return the corresponding key

Sorry for the late reply ahmed24, but I think what you want here is array_slice() [us3.php.net] or array_splice() [us3.php.net], depending on which works best for your conditions.

Splice actually removes the elements, so this is probably the one you want.
