Re: Help with PHP Extension

Hello Christoph,

You were absolutely correct! Thank you so much!

It looks like I misinterpreted the `static zval*` return type on
current data to actually require a return of a zval from the function.
After checking how it was done in `com_dotnet/com_iterator.c` and
initialising in the `php_sparsehashmap_iterator` with a zval for data,
and assigning the data to that rather than an in-scope variable, it
worked like a dream :)

Again, thank you for your help with this. Happy to finally see this
working after months of trying :)
