preventing an array from being treated like a string

lih0nmanlih0nman Posts: 30Member
i know that retrieving a particular character from a string and retrieving a particular record from an array has the same syntax in PHP. when i build an array like this -

$n = 1;
while ($n != 10) {
$time[$n] = time * $n;
$n += 1;
}
echo $time[1];

how can i ensure that i am retrieving the first record from the array $time, not the second character from $time[1]?

thanks.

    [code]
    if(is_array($time)) {
    echo $time[1];
    }else {
    echo "Error...";
    }
    [/code]
