It would be really helpful if in the dynamic search in the documentation it didn't just give the function names that match and the short description, but also their parameters, e.g. 

  strpos($haystack, $needle, [$offset=0]) => int
  Find the position of the first occurrence of a substring in a string

Rather than just 

  Find the position of the first occurrence of a substring in a string

In maybe 50% of cases, all I need to check is the order of the parameters (especially the search ones, because haystack and needle are so inconsistent in parameter positioning), and with the parameters and maybe the return type I very often wouldn't need to go the the complete page at all.
