Examples sample code invoking the arrayMerge function

Lucee 4.5+ Merge two arrays resulting in a single re-indexed array. All elements of both arrays are preserved.

fruit = ['apple','banana','orange'];
veggies = ['tomato','carrot','corn','peas','peppers'];
healthyFoods = arrayMerge(fruit, veggies);
writeOutput(arrayToList(healthyFoods));

Expected Result: apple,banana,orange,tomato,carrot,corn,peas,peppers

fruit = ['apple','banana','orange'];

healthyFoods = fruit.merge(veggies);
writeOutput(arrayToList(healthyFoods));

Expected Result: apple,banana,orange,tomato,carrot,corn,peas,peppers

Lucee 4.5+ Merge two arrays resulting in a single re-indexed array. Where the both arrays have elements in the same position, only values from the first array are included in the result. Valid using standard or member function syntax.

Note how the first three elements of the veggies array are not merged because the fruit array already has values for elements 1-3.

fruit = ['apple','banana','orange'];
veggies = ['tomato','carrot','corn','peas','peppers'];
healthyFoods = arrayMerge(fruit, veggies, true);
writeOutput(arrayToList(healthyFoods));

Expected Result: apple,banana,orange,peas,peppers
