Hm, with null/false/-1/'' as value you can display the array:

$a = array('a' => false, 'b' => '', 'c' => '1a');
print_r($a);

Just make sure to not run array_filter() against this array or those will be removed.

so - as i understand there isn't any way to write code without any temporary assignments ? am i right?)

I'm sorry but I don't understand, maybe because English is not my main language, can you provide an example of what you would like to do?
