What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



current — Returns the current element in the array without moving the internal array pointer.


mixed current(array);
array array: Array in which to find the current element


Value of the current element in the array; FALSE when no more elements exist


Returns the element value currently pointed to by the internal array pointer. This can be useful with next() and prev() in order to traverse an array; however, this is dangerous. The reason is that current() returns the value of the current element; if this evaluates to FALSE, there is no way to tell whether you've actually hit the end of the array being traversed or the current element simply has a value of FALSE.

This function does not move the internal array pointer.


PHP 3, PHP 4


Example 43. Get the value of the current element of an array

$my_array = array("a","b","c","d","e");
echo "Current: ", current($my_array), "\n";
for ($i = count($my_array); $i >= 0; $i--) {
  echo "Next: ", next($my_array), "\n";
echo "Current: ", current($my_array);

Current: a
Next: b
Next: c
Next: d
Next: e
Current: e
