[nycphp-talk] Disappearing data or I've gone mad

I know it's not the this->data....

But, data is being passed to the object and created as:
	[calling page]
	$data[first_name] = "Jeremy";
	$data[last_name] = "Hise";
	...
	$tmpl = new template("user_profile", $data);
	...
	[in constructor]
	$this->data = $data;
	...
	function parse() {
	...

get_tags() basically opens the template file, and, using a regex, compiles an array of keywords found between <smac> and </smac>. That array is then returned to parse().

In that function I had:

while(list($key,$value) = each($this->data)) {
	print($key . " = " . $value . "<br>");
}

Above the is_array() check

And I got what I expected:

first_name = Jeremy
last_name = Hise
email = jhise at nextsource.com

etc...

I've tried with quotes, without quotes, if tried a for($i = 0; $i < sizeof($kws); $i++), I've tried every single possible thing that I can think of...

In the meanwhile I've reversed the method and the loop is based on the this->data...but my templates will eventually need to have value-less keys (like "CURRENT_DATE" which will evaluate to the current time).

It's driv'n me nuts

The regex, btw, is "/<smac>([^<>]*)<\\/smac>/i" used with preg_match_all().

Thanks for everyone's input.
