PHP5开始支持了接口, 并且内置了Iterator接口, 所以如果你定义了一个类,并实现了Iterator接口,那么你的这个类对象就是ZEND_ITER_OBJECT,否则就是ZEND_ITER_PLAIN_OBJECT.

对于ZEND_ITER_PLAIN_OBJECT的类,foreach会通过HASH_OF获取该对象的默认属性数组,然后对该数组进行foreach.

而对于ZEND_ITER_OBJECT的类对象,则会通过调用对象实现的Iterator接口相关函数来进行foreach, 所以, 对于这道笔试题, 可以作出如下的答案:

class sample implements Iterator
{
    private $_items = array(0,1,2,3);

    public function __construct() {
                  ;//void
    }
    public function rewind() { reset($this->_items); }
    public function current() { return current($this->_items); }
    public function key() { return key($this->_items); }
    public function next() { return next($this->_items); }
    public function valid() { return ( $this->current() !== false ); }
}

$sa = new sample();
foreach($sa as $key => $val){
    print $key . "=>" .$val.'<br/>';
}

以上代码在php 5.2.6下运行正常。
