I have noticed that the function "compact()" fails for underscored variable names OR variable names that have one or more capital letters. For example, compacting $my_name won't work, similarly $myName or $MyName won't work, but $myname would work good.
This should be included in the documentation && any reason as to why it's like that ?
And yes! i checked the other bug reports, sure I understand the superglobals problem but this is different, underscore and / or case-sensitive variable names don't work
