PHP is treating integer 0 as a NUll. This brings inconsistency when dealing with an array with zeros and spaces(NULL)

Test script:
if ($val==NULL)
echo "sad";

Expected result:
No value

Instead it returns "sad"

Actual result:

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
