How to check the length of array?

It would be very slightly more efficient to use count instead of sizeof, since sizeof is an alias of count.
did they just make sizeof() to be an alias of count() because programmers are used to using sizeof() in C? Or is there a more indepth reason?

That might be one reason, or maybe because it was supported in an earlier version of PHP, and then they changed it to count for whatever reason.
Thanks,It seems odd that they would stop using sizeof() in favor of count() when PHP is so much like C. Probably got requests for sizeof() or questions about so they desided to alias it.
