The class provides a solution that can not only read and change php.ini settings, but it also can verify if you are setting those values to the correct types that PHP is expecting.

It uses a knowledge base file that contains the types of values that PHP expects for most of the configuration settings, so it can validate all the values and tell you if you set any values incorrectly.
