Why does php defer so much from it's normal model of declaring things (e.g. error_reporting(E_ALL)) and now introduces something that seems totally illogical (assignment in declaration)? I hope this is only while devving version 7 and is replaced by something more sane later on...

Aside from that, I'm totally in favour strong-typing... I like php a lot, been devving professionally for about 9 years now, but always missed type hinting for datatype/scalars... But also introducing it for return values totally surpassed my expectations... ;)

Hello Rafael,

Thank you for your comments.

I find very weird the declaration of strict_types too.
