predisHow can I use the zscan command in PHP with Redis?

The zscan command in Redis can be used in PHP to iterate over elements in a sorted set. It returns a cursor which can be used to iterate over the elements in the sorted set.

Example code

    // Connect to Redis
    $redis = new Redis();
    $redis->connect('', 6379);

    // Get the first cursor
    $cursor = 0;
    $elements = $redis->zscan('sorted_set', $cursor);
    $cursor = $elements[0];

    // Iterate over the elements
    while ($cursor != 0) {
        $elements = $redis->zscan('sorted_set', $cursor);
        foreach ($elements[1] as $key => $value) {
            echo "$key => $value\n";
        $cursor = $elements[0];

Output example

element1 => 5
element2 => 9
element3 => 1

This code will connect to a Redis server, get the first cursor of the sorted set, and iterate over the elements of the sorted set using the zscan command. For each element, it will print out the key and value to the screen.

Code explanation

  1. Connect to Redis: $redis = new Redis(); $redis->connect('', 6379);
  2. Get first cursor: $cursor = 0; $elements = $redis->zscan('sorted_set', $cursor); $cursor = $elements[0];
  3. Iterate over elements: while ($cursor != 0) { ... }
  4. Print out key and value: echo "$key => $value\n";
