Comparing strings and integers

Originally posted at saji-codes tumblr.

did you know?

When comparing int to string in php, string gets casted to integer, not the other way around.

<?php
var_dump(42 == 'foo');   // false, (int)'foo'   === 0
var_dump(42 == 'foo42'); // false, (int)'foo42' === 0
var_dump(42 == '42foo'); // true,  (int)'42foo' === 42
