Group Timestamps in array into unique instances and count them via php

I have an array that looks like this:

 

array(5642) {

[0]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:04:48"

[1]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:04:54"

[2]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:00"

[3]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:06"

[4]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:12"

[5]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:18"

[6]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:06:18"

[7]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:06:24"

}

 

I need to group the instances any time there is more than a 6 second gap between elements. So 0 =>5 would be one array and 6 and 7 would be a new array.

 

Ive been able to produce the following but its not ideal

 

array(5642) {

[0]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:04:48"

[1]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:04:54"

[2]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:00"

[3]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:06"

[4]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:12"

[5]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:05:18"

[6]=> string(19) "end"

[7]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:06:18"

[8]=> string(19) "2021-02-10 09:06:24" }

 

$burner_time = array();

foreach($Burner_Control_Alm as $new_burner){ $burner_time[] = strtotime($new_burner); }

$repl = 'end'; for ($i=1; $i<count($burner_time); $i++) { $value_second = $burner_time[$i]; $value_first = $burner_time[$i-1] === $repl ? $burner_time[$i-2] : $burner_time[$i-1]; if ($value_second > $value_first + 6) {

array_splice($burner_time, $i++, 0, $repl);

}

print_r($burner_time);

}

try

foreach ($array as $k => $d) {
     if ($k > 0) {
         if (strtotime($d) > strtotime($array[$k-1])+6) {
             $new[] = "-------------------";
         }
     }
     $new[] = $d;
}

 

$new = Array
(
    [0] => 2021-02-10 09:04:48
    [1] => 2021-02-10 09:04:54
    [2] => 2021-02-10 09:05:00
    [3] => 2021-02-10 09:05:06
    [4] => 2021-02-10 09:05:12
    [5] => 2021-02-10 09:05:18
    [6] => -------------------
    [7] => 2021-02-10 09:06:18
    [8] => 2021-02-10 09:06:24
)

[edit...]

Alternative solution...

$new = [];
$newkey = 0;

foreach ($array as $k => $d) {
     if ($k > 0) {
         if (strtotime($d) > strtotime($array[$k-1])+6) {
             $newkey++;
         }
     }
     $new[$newkey][] = $d;
}

gives

$new = Array
(
    [0] => Array
        (
            [0] => 2021-02-10 09:04:48
            [1] => 2021-02-10 09:04:54
            [2] => 2021-02-10 09:05:00
            [3] => 2021-02-10 09:05:06
            [4] => 2021-02-10 09:05:12
            [5] => 2021-02-10 09:05:18
        )

    [1] => Array
        (
            [0] => 2021-02-10 09:06:18
            [1] => 2021-02-10 09:06:24
        )

)

Barand You are the Best! I know sometimes I run in to an end and the solution is there but just hard to find after staring at the same code for days, you my friend are a great start to my weekend! Best to you. And just so you know I posted this on Stack Overflow and was told that I did not try enough and i should try harder before asking questions. I will speak highly of this form and stick around to see if I can help others as well.
