It might be better to change RFC title.
My goal is sort out PHP behaviors which may seem strange.
If it's a bug, fix it. if not, document it so that users understand
what it suppose to do.
I'm not sure behavior that is documented and implemented exactly as it
was planned (e.g. min() behavior) can be called "inconsistency". It is
actually completely consistent and does exactly what it is meant to do.
Same for dec/hex strings - it works exactly like strtod(). Of course it
does not support every numeric base in existence, but it was never
I agree. It's the way PHP works.
It might be better to document these, since there are many languages out
there and people have different expectations.
Also, "Null string is not handled as string" is not correct - null
string is handled as string, except in one narrow case where you apply
array operations to it. Right now it gives an impression empty strings
are not handled as strings in PHP at all, which is not correct.
I've updated to
"Null string is handled as array" when string is accessed as array of char.
I appreciate better explanation :)
