why when I use "current (1)", it returns "current () Expects parameter 1 to be array, integer given"; however, when using "current (new stdClass)", it returns "false"?

In manual, the current function is exemplified as follows:

mixed current (array & $ array)

At first, this might lead one to think that it only accepts array passed by reference as parameter.

If this is the correct operation of the function, is there any possibility to change this statement in the manual?

Non-iterator objects are iterable like arrays, mostly for BC reasons. This is expected behaviour, but I don't think we should change the manual page to note that — effectively, it'll be treated like an array regardless, and it's confusing.
