A lot of functions in PHP return arrays in stead of objects. Of course it's possible to simply cast the return value to an object like:

$urlObject = (object) parse_url($url);

But then I would get an instance of the stdClass. I can imagine situations where people would like to cast arrays into properties of their own custom objects. Maybe something like:

cast_array2object($array, $someCustomObject);

or something like:

$this .= (object) parse_url($url);

Another option is to simply add the array as a property to the custom object. Then use __get() and __set() to simulate object properties with the array.
