Another PHP casting weirdness06 May 2011
Second weird PHP behavior behavior of the day :
$foo = false; echo $foo['bar']; // Ouptuts nothing, but doesn't throw an error either
Strange. I try to read an undefined index (
falseis not an array), but PHP
doesn't complain. That's weird.
$foo = true; echo $foo['bar']; // Throws an error
This time, PHP tells me that the index is not defined and throws an error. Wait, what ?
Apparently, this is the intended behavior, but it does seem a bit strange...
