Is there a way to dynamically create new variables through looping?

I'm trying to understand how to create this

Imagine having an array with three values:

$array = array('one','two','three');

I'd like to find a way to output these using a foreach loop


$variable_one $variable_two $variable_three


How do i set up the code to create $variable_[dynamic]? Sorry for my lack terminology.

Something like this should work:

var $array = ['one','two','three']; var $arrayLength = $array.length; for (var i = 0; i < arrayLength; i++) { var $array[i]; }

Nice thanks for the response, Is this PHP?

Also, how can I go about researching the documentation for this? As in how can I reword this question on google so It would pull up what I'm looking for?

Thank you Jon Schiedermayer
