We describe wrong indistinguishable point about current() function.
When array points the end of an array, current() returns not boolean false but the last element.

+    The result of calling <function>current</function> on an empty array
+    and array pointing beyond the end of the elements
     are indistinguishable from a <type>boolean</type> &false; element. 
     To properly traverse an array which may contain &false; elements, see the 
     <function>foreach</function> function.
