Returns a Map containing the first n key/values of the current Map

public function take(
  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 that will be included in the Map.


  • Map<Tk,Tv> - A Map that is a proper subset of this Map up to n elements.


$m = Map {
  'red' => '#ff0000',
  'green' => '#00ff00',
  'blue' => '#0000ff',
  'yellow' => '#ffff00',
  'purple' => '#663399',

// Take the first two elements
$take2 = $m->take(2);
