Ilia Alshanetsky's Blog:
Scalar Type Hints are Here!
May 24, 2010 @ 11:48:19

Ilia Alshanetsky has a quick new post with some great news for some PHP developers out there - scalar type hinting has been introduced into the latest trunk of the PHP project.

About an hour ago, something I've been fighting for almost 2 years happened. The Scalar Type Hinting patch for PHP (the one I wrote almost a year ago) has been adjusted for PHP's trunk tree and committed by Derick.

You can see some of the type hinting features already included in PHP in the manual. This patch adds hinting ability for the other (non-object and non-array) variable types.
