Here is an example of how to use the parse_menu_hook function:

$menu_item = "{{label}}";
$replacements = array(
"{{url}}" => "",
"{{label}}" => "Home"
$updated_menu_item = parse_menu_hook(array_keys($replacements), array_values($replacements), $menu_item);
echo $updated_menu_item;

In this example, the $menu_item variable contains an HTML link with two placeholders ({{url}} and {{label}}). The $replacements array contains the values that will replace these placeholders. The array_keys function is used to extract the keys of the $replacements array as the $find parameter for the parse_menu_hook function, and the array_values function is used to extract the values of the $replacements array as the $replace parameter. The parse_menu_hook function is called with these parameters and the resulting string with the replaced values is stored in the $updated_menu_item variable. Finally, the $updated_menu_item variable is echoed to output the updated HTML link.
