array_copy(dest, dest_index, src, src_index, length);
|dest||The ID of the array to copy to.|
|dest_index||The index within the array to copy to.|
|src||The ID of the array to copy from.|
|src_index||The index with the array to start copying from.|
|length||The length (number of array indices) to copy.|
With this function you can copy all or part of one array into
another array at any position. You need to supply both the source
and the destination arrays (both need to have been created
previously), as well as a position within the source array to copy
from and a position within the destination array to copy to.
Finally you need to specify the length of the array (or the length
of the part that you want) to copy. If the data being copied
exceeds the length of the destination array, the array will be
extended to accept the data.
if !array_equals(inventory_array, item_array)
var len = array_length_1d(inventory_array);
array_copy(item_array, 0, inventory_array, 0, len);
The above code will check two arrays to see if they hold equivalent values, and if they do not then the code will copy the entire contents of the array "inventory_array" to the array "item_array".
