    //remove duplicate array by key
    $unique = $handler->_unique($products, 'name');
    echo "<h3>Remove duplicate value by key</h3><pre>";
    echo "</pre>";
    echo "<br>";
  3. Sort the products base on price
    //Now sort the products base on price
    $sort_1_price = $products;
    $handler->_sort($sort_1_price, 'price', SORT_ASC);
    echo "<h3>Sort by price ASC</h3><pre>";
    echo "</pre>";
    echo "<br>";
    $sort_2_price = $products;
    $handler->_sort($sort_2_price, 'price', SORT_DESC);
    echo "<h3>Sort by price DESC</h3><pre>";
    echo "</pre>";
    echo "<br>";
