Returns a Map containing the values after the n-th element of the current Map

public function skip(
  int $n,
): Map<Tk, Tv>;

The returned Map will always be a proper subset of the current Map.

n is 1-based. So the first element is 1, the second 2, etc.


  • int $n - The last element to be skipped; the $n+1 element will be the first one in the returned Map.


  • Map<Tk,Tv> - A Map that is a proper subset of the current Map containing values after the specified n-th element.


$m = Map {
  'red' => '#ff0000',
  'green' => '#00ff00',
  'blue' => '#0000ff',
  'yellow' => '#ffff00',

// Create a new Map after skipping the first two elements ('red' and 'green')
$skip2 = $m->skip(2);
