Also, there appear to only be 36 questions tagged for-loop and each ( That implies that it may have a different usage. – Richard J. Ross III Feb 8 '13 at 0:19
I'd rather we get rid of both tags. There's no real use for them. – casperOne Feb 8 '13 at 0:22
@casperOne maybe each, but foreach? – Tshepang Feb 8 '13 at 0:23
Yep. I mean, are you really interested in foreach across the bazillion programming languages it's in? It's worthless in how generic it is, just like string. – casperOne Feb 8 '13 at 0:25

each and foreach mean two different things.

foreach can be implied to be used for the PHP foreach loop.
each is a method in the jQuery library.
