What version of PHP are you using? Have you checked the online bug reports?Hi, Robert Does not seem like a bug to me ... http://schlueters.de/blog/archives/141-References-and-foreach.html What you should do to get the expected result: Unset the variable after you don't need this reference any longer.Ah yes... that clued me in. I disagree with the article's generalization with respect to references since references accomplish some things that cannot be accomplished otherwise, but even I missed the fact that the second loop was using a variable that was a reference to the last element of the array as created in the first loop *lol*. The user's very act of checking their results was confounding the result... I love it :) Cheers, Rob.
Re, your "...that cannot be accomplished otherwise,..." Can you provide some examples? The only ones I've found are when using create_function() and the arguments for callback functions. I can't even remember or find in my code an example of my foreach()loops needed it. Seems, I recall earlier versions of PHP [<4? ]required references for variables.
