this is old issue #3074 - do you support foreach by reference?

I'm using PHP Version 4.2.2.
Having multidimensional array - $multi_array.
I would like to change the $multi_array from place marked **HERE**

foreach($multi_array AS $multi_key=>$multi_array_item)
{	foreach($multi_array_item["another_array"] AS $key=>$value)
	{	if($value=="asdfg")
		{	**HERE**
		}
		...
	}
}

I have to do it using:
$multi_array[$multi_key]["another_array"][$key]=$new_value

- - - - - - - - 

It would be nice to use "&" to change the $multi_array:

foreach($multi_array AS $multi_key=>&$multi_array_item)
{	foreach($multi_array_item["another_array"] AS &$value)
	{	if($value=="asdfg")
		{	$value=$new_value;
			$multi_array_item["value_have_changed"]=true;
		}else
		{	$multi_array_item["value_have_changed"]=false;
		}
		...
	}
}


Is it possible to implement this to new version of PHP?

Thanks,

that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments
to the existing bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
