Description:
------------
A little suggestion for when some people input the wrong function, and when a list of suggestions is made:

ex: I put in set_ini instead of the ini_set and ofcourse i went to the page where it gave suggestions, but the proper function wasn't even on there.  i only found what i was looking for cause i caught my dumb mistake, but other people might think the function they were looking for does not exists and try to make their own which would be a lot of unnecessary work.  i hope this was the right place to report this.

*what* can we do about people filling in wrong functions?

well wasn't the whole point of the suggestions thing so that if you did type in something wrong it would find it.  it's just a sugession that you could take into consideration that people could flip two parts on either side of the "_".  i really don't care if it gets implemented or not, i thought i'd just suggest it

Your suggestion is too specific for ini_set, for which this would work... What could be done with imageresize() or mysql_num_rows()? I doubt we will code such an intelligent search engine to guess what you are looking for... We already have a beta testing of a function list, which will help you find functions better. See http://php.net/search
