Thanks guys--passing by reference solved my problem. I was not aware
that the foreach statement works on a copy. This was explained in the
online documentation. Duh!!

foreach works on a copy of an array, so the behavior you saw is expected.
See the online manual.
I want to modify $results within the foreach. In other words,
during a given pass of this iteration, I want to delete some
of the items based on particular conditions. Then on the next
pass thru the foreach, I want $results to be the newer, modified
This does not seem to work. It appears that the foreach statement
is implemented such that $results is read into memory at the start
so that any modifications I make to it during a given pass, are ignored
on the next pass. Is this true?
You could use a while loop, or, instead of unset-ing elements of $results,
store the elements you want to keep into a new array.
What about passing it by reference?
foreach($results as &$key => &$item)
// modify items here
