When json_encode array and json_decode it, can't get access to array key of object and generate PHP Notice.

Test script:
$a = [1 => 2];
$s = json_encode($a);
$b = @json_decode($s);
$q = (array)$b;
var_dump($q[1]); // PHP Notice:  Undefined offset: 1 in php shell code on line 1

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.

Read the section on "Converting to array" in the manual[1]. What
you actually want to do is

  $q = json_decode($s, true);
