Description:
------------
Why it is possible to write:

  foo() or die("Can't foo");

but impossible to write:

  foreach ($bars as $bar) {
    foo($bar) or contine; // or break
    do_something($bar);
  }

Having this functionality would be very convenient as a short form of the following:

  if (!foo($bar)) continue;  // or break

because "break" and "continue" can't represents boolean values :)

Yes, that's pretty obvious, but PHP could be modified to be able to do that. This change will make code more clear (like ?: operator) therefore it is worth implementing.

This is debatable, and since this bug tracker is not suitable for
such discussion, please forward the feature request to the
internals mailing list.  For the time being, I'm suspending this
ticket.
