Codex:

Sets an array in depth based on a path of keys.

It is the PHP equivalent of JavaScript's lodash.set() and mirroring it may help other components retain some symmetry between client and server implementations. Example usage: $array = array(); _wp_array_set( $array, array( 'a', 'b', 'c', 1 ) ); $array becomes: array( 'a' => array( 'b' => array( 'c' => 1, ), ), );
