[PHP6] function-return-array idea!
Sep 07, 2007 @ 16:19:00

Stijn Leenknegt has posted a suggestion of his directed towards the developers behind PHP6 for a different way to return array values that he'd of found handy in working with his latest application (a Zend Framework app).

In his example, he currently returns the result of a get() call on a registry value to a variable and gets the first value (of an array) from it. His suggestion, though is to simplify it down to something like:

$one = Zend_Registery::get('myArray')[0];

Making it even easier (and more elegant) to work with returned array values.

So dev team of PHP, could you discuss this idea and maybe you can add this to PHP6.
