Description:
------------
Documentation for session_write_close() states that it returns boolean value but according to this https://github.com/php/php-src/commit/7f196e321 this statement is true only for version >= 7.2. For earlier versions this function returns nothing. I assume reference to return value should specify that earlier versions don't return anything and that boolean return value is available for versions 7.2 and higher.

Test script:
---------------
// for php versions before 7.2
session_start();
$result = session_write_close();
var_dump($result); 

Expected result:
----------------
<script_name>:<line>:boolean true


Actual result:
--------------
<script_name>:<line>:null

Sorry, it's only in UPGRADING. I'm not sure why it's not properly documented.

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.
