php > echo $e
php > ;
php > $f = json_decode($e);
php > var_dump($f);
object(stdClass)#2 (2) {
php > $g=(array)$f;
php > echo $f['a'];
PHP Fatal error: Cannot use object of type stdClass as array in php shell code on line 1

Expected result:
php > $a=array('a'=>1,'b'=>2);
php > $b = (object)$a;
php > $c = (array)$b;
php > var_dump($a);
array(2) {
php > echo $c['a'];

Actual result:
PHP Fatal error: Cannot use object of type stdClass as array in php shell code on line 1

Surely your last console line should be: echo $g['a'];   (considering that $f is 
the object, and $g the array)?

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
