This is a very basic question i guess. i am not able to figure it out.
I am calling from a db a set of content which will be in the array
Code:
Array
(
    [1] => Harsha M V
    [2] => Azhar Ibrahim
    [3] => Avinash G
    [5] => Zishan Sayeed
    [4] => Vinay Thomas
    [6] => Zishan Aayeed
    [7] => Harsha G C
    [8] => Santosh S Kumar
    [9] => Vachana M V
    [10] => ICs
    [11] => Car
    [12] => Bus
    [13] => Slate
    [14] => Candy
    [15] => Jamica
    [16] => Bike
    [18] => Kick u 
    [17] => PC
)
I wanna wanna make a function where on sending the Array and no of columns i should be able to print the content is such a way that

The above array has 18 elements. so by dividing it by 4 i get 4.5.
and the remainder is 2.
First two columns need to have 5elemenets each. Then next two should have 4 elements each.

I want the structure of the elements to be like this

<div>
<span> column 1 </span>
<span> column 2 </span>
<span> column 3 </span>
<span> column 4 </span>
</div>

i will use css to align it side by.


PHP Code:
function makeCol($array$colNo$field$div$span)
{
    
asort($array);
    echo 
$noEntries sizeof($array);
    echo 
"<br/>";
    echo 
$floorValue floor($noEntries $colNo);
    echo 
"<br/>";
    echo 
$remainder $noEntries $colNo;
    
$count 1;
    echo 
"<br/>";

    foreach (
$array as $id => $label) {
        
        
// echo "$id => $label<br/>";
        //echo $floorValue;
        // if ($remainder != 0) {
        
if ($colNo 0) {
            echo 
"Col number : $colNo ";
            if (
$floorValue 0) {

                echo 
"$id => $label = $floorValue<br/>";

            }
            
$floorValue--;
            
//  }
            // $remainder--;
        
}
        
$colNo--;
    }

    echo 
"<br/>";
    
/*
    echo "<div class=\"$div\">";
    foreach ($array as $id => $label) {
    if ($count <= $colNo) {
    echo "<span class=\"$span\"><input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"data[$field][$field][]\" value=\"$id\" id=\"$field$field$id\" />$label</span><br/>";
    } else {
    $count = 1;
    echo "</div><div class=\"$div\"><span class=\"$span\"><input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"data[$field][$field][]\" value=\"$id\" id=\"$field$field$id\" />$label</span><br/>";
    }
    $count++;
    }
    echo "</div>";
    */

this is what i have been trying. i am getting confused with the logic of using the foreach
