Argument 1 passed to iterator_to_array() must implement interface Traversable, array given. 

Would be great to improve the behavior, possibly as follows:

iterator_to_array($array, TRUE); must return the array as is,

iterator_to_array($array, FALSE); must return array_values($array)

Thank you in advance

Worth noting that the function is named *iterator*_to_array(), not *iterable*_to_array().

I'm not necessarily against extending the functionality like this, but in that case for consistency I would rather rename this function iterable_to_array() and retain iterator_to_array() as an alias.

FWIW, there has been an RFC proposing iterable_to_array()[1],
which has been declined.
