Description:
------------
---
From manual page: https://php.net/language.types.boolean
---

According to PSR, boolean values should be written lowercase, eg.

$foo = false; 

and not 

$foo = FLASE;

Right now in many places in docs uppercase values are used, which confuses new users.

> According to PSR, […]

PSR is irrelevant for the code examples in the PHP manual, since
these are supposed to follow the PEAR CS[1]; however, PEAR CS also
mandates that true, false and null must always be lowercase[2].

Thanks for the quick verification.
Its quite surprising that docs are not using PSR. I've created a separate ticket for this topic https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=80060
