Hello

It is just a mine oppinion but I think to the description of strpos should be added the return value BOOLEAN not only INT because the return value is either INT if the string is found or BOOLEAN if the string is not find.

I like these documentations.

Also note. When I search comparator == or === it is not found. Could you fix it?

Best Regards

Test script:

Now it looks like:
strpos ( string $haystack , mixed $needle [, int $offset = 0 ] ) : int

I think it should be something like:
strpos ( string $haystack , mixed $needle [, int $offset = 0 ] ) : {int|boolena}



Expected result:
----------------
strpos ( string $haystack , mixed $needle [, int $offset = 0 ] ) : {int|boolena}

Actual result:
--------------
strpos ( string $haystack , mixed $needle [, int $offset = 0 ] ) : int
