Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: php5

Ubuntu 9.04
PHP 5.2.6-3ubuntu4.1

At the least, this is a documentation bug; I consider the behavior
undesirable, so it's also a feature request.  I was told to report bugs
to Ubuntu rather than PHP; if this is incorrect, I'll take it upstream

I learned the below function name in other languages where it's allowed,
although I'm not certain whether this is because keywords are case-
sensitive or because foreach isn't a keyword there.

function forEach(){

I expect this to be valid, but PHP says otherwise:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FOREACH, expecting T_STRING

The manual doesn't mention this that I can find (
http://www.php.net/manual/en/reserved.keywords.php ).
