Description Author

This class can manage arrays with keys of any type.

It provides interfaces to access arrays with regular PHP array functions but internally it stores array keys and entry values in separate arrays, so it avoids PHP automatic casting of array keys to integer or string values.

The class can find entries with given key values by searching the internal keys array, so entries with keys of different types represent different array entries.

In PHP arrays may have keys of either integer or string types. If you use values of other types as keys, PHP will cast the type of key values.

This class provides a workaround to this limitation by implementing an array interface that internally uses a separate array for keys and another for values, so keys can be of any type.
