re: I Want Scalar Objects in PHP VIEW POST

I mean, when type is not enforced, scalar object can have different methods depending on current type. Or am I wrong?

Maybe I'm missing something, but isn't how JavaScript does it with .reduce, .map, .split etc... practically what the suggested improvement wants? And JS doesn't enforce types either, right?

Yep, and it would just require an extra step sometimes to explicitly cast to the desired type. We have to do this in PHP/JS sometimes now as it is.

It could be usable tho... i imagine this:

$array = ((string) $float)->explode(.);
