Is there a way to set the pointer of an array to a specific key?
I save the current position in an array using
$base_position = key($myarray);
I then do various reads back and forth in the array using
prev($myarray);
and
next($myarray);
at the end of the routine I want to be able to go back to my base position in the array using the key that I saved in $base_position
