Package: PHP Type Class

PHP is a weakly typed language. This fact means that it allows setting the type of variable values when executing the PHP code.

Although this makes the PHP language very flexible and tolerant of the developer's mistakes, sometimes it can be hard to debug subtle bugs caused by the developer's errors.

In practice, that can mean that developers may take more time to fix subtle bugs that probably would not exist if PHP was a strongly typed language.

This package provides a solution that can help to avoid those bugs. It gives the name strings of the PHP variable types.

So, if a developer wants to use the PHP GetType and SetType functions to get or set the variable type, the developer can use this class.

So, if the developer makes a mistake in the name of a constant provided by the class, PHP will trigger an error that can make it easier to find bugs caused by typing the name of a PHP type.
