Sorting arrays with more than one dimension, or by something other than alphabetical or numerical order, is more complicated. PHP knows how to compare two numbers or two text strings, but in a multidimensional array, each element is an array.
There are two approaches to sorting multidimensional arrays: creating a user-defined sort or using the array_multisort() function
Using array_multisort() to sort array
The array_multisort() function can be used either to sort multidimensional arrays, or to sort multiple arrays at once
The following is the definition of a two-dimensional array used earlier. This array stores Bob’s three products with a code, a description, and a price for each
$products = array(array('TIR', 'Tires', 100), array('OIL', 'Oil', 10), array('SPK', 'Spark Plugs', 4));
