While working in PHP I found the need to fill an array with new objects on the fly. So at first I tried the array_fill function that worked fine for values but when I tried an object I found it was the same object in every position meaning if I modified one they all changed. What I needed was a new object in each. The easiest way I found to do that was a for loop.

The following doesn’t work correctly

$arr = array_fill(1,12,new MyObject());

So to accomplish the same idea I did the following

//Fill Array with new object
$arr[$i]=new MyObject();
