A notice about ArrayObject

Some methods such as $api->server->find() return an array. This array is made of ArrayObject instead of PHP standard array.

Therefore, you have to cast each array (returned by any methods in this library) from ArrayObject to standard array before you use it as an argument for the functions of PHP standard array API such as array_shift().

Also, be aware that an ArrayObject will not be copied in an assignment or as an argument to a function since it is an object but not an array. By the same token, a boolean-casted empty ArrayObject will not be evaluated as false.


$servers = $api->server->find();

// This doesn't work well
while ($server = array_shift($servers)) {
    // The same goes for accessors
    while ($tag = array_shift($server->tags)) {

// This works well
$servers_array = (array)$servers;
while ($server = array_shift($servers_array)) {
    $tags_array = (array)$server->tags;
    while ($tag = array_shift($tags_array)) {

// This works well because ArrayObject implements IteratorAggregate
foreach ($servers as $server) {
    foreach ($server->tags as $tag) {

// This works well too because ArrayObject implements ArrayAccess and Countable
for ($i=0; $i < count($servers); $i++) {
    $server = $servers[$i];
    for ($j=0; $j < count($server->tags); $j++) {
        $tag = $server->tags[$j];
