Doc Bug #63197 floatval documentation should say what happens on failure
Submitted: 2012-10-02 09:09 UTC Modified: 2012-11-15 12:43 UTC

Status: Closed Package: Documentation problem
PHP Version: 5.4.7 OS: Xubuntu Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Description:
------------
---
From manual page: http://www.php.net/function.floatval#refsect1-
function.floatval-returnvalues
---

The description of the floatval return value is incomplete:

"The float value of the given variable. Empty arrays return 0, non-empty arrays 
return 1."

It should say that floatval("string") returns 0 (the intval description does).
An even better wording has been proposed in bug #50311 (which was only partially 
fixed)

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.
