foreach loop vs $.each

Hi guys, i'm fairly new to jQuery and I would like to find out what are the differences between foreach and $.each(). Since both are able to iterate through the array.

Not too sure, but I wouldn't think a whole lot of difference, maybe the way they are implimented... given that jQuery trys to make JavaScript easier and better performance wise, I would think that $.each is may be a little faster and give better results, not really sure lol, but I doubt there is a big difference. At least not anything you will be able to notice.
