Emulate sorts in the CLI web server

Emulate sorts in PHP can be utilized to yield content as a sort other than PHP, that is, as a sort other than content/html. When you run a PHP page, the default yield is content/html, however you can utilize headers to set it as, PDF and create PDF documents. At the point when a server knows about various MIME sorts, as most servers like HHVM, Apache and Nginx normally are, they know how to serve a given record as a matter of course, in light of its augmentation, without you setting particular directions in PHP itself. The order line server from PHP 5.4 had just a couple MIME sorts up until now, and this adaptation will present handfuls more. It’s protected to state that all the basic MIME sorts will be canvassed by the inherent PHP server now.

Inside Operator Overloading

This is a component we as web engineers utilizing PHP most likely won’t be presented to, because of the watchword “inner”. Inward signifies “non userland” where userland is the region of PHP advancement we, the end clients of PHP, utilize. It applies just to inner classes, with a specific end goal to make advancement here more straightforward and code cleaner to peruse. A nitty gritty clarification can be found here.

Transfers of more than 2GB are presently acknowledged

Until 5.6, no transfers of 2GB and over were upheld in PHP. This is not true anymore, as the changelog states, and transfers of self-assertive size are presently bolstered.

POST information memory utilization diminished

POST information memory utilization has been contracted by 2 to 3 times, taking after two expulsions: the always_populate_raw_post_data setting from php.ini, and the superglobal variable $HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA. This means you can no longerget to crude post information that way, however need to depend on an answer, for example,

$postdata = file_get_contents(“php://input”);

Take note of that getting POST by means of ://info is inaccessible when a frame is multipart (as it were, the point at which a shape has a record transfer component).

Enhanced language structure for variadic capacities

Variadic capacities are capacities which can take a discretionary measure of contentions. When you provided a few contentions to it, you more often than not needed to do some joining subsequent to calling func_get_args, which was to some degree unreasonable. As taken from case here, the grammar in 5.5 and prior was:

class MySQL executes DB {

ensured $pdo;

open capacity query($query) {

$stmt = $this->pdo->prepare($query);

$stmt->execute(array_slice(func_get_args(), 1));

return $stmt;




$userData = $db->query(‘SELECT * FROM clients WHERE id = ?’, $userID)- >fetch();

presently, the language structure will be:

class MySQL executes DB {

open capacity query($query, …$params) {

$stmt = $this->pdo->prepare($query);


return $stmt;




As should be obvious, the …$params language structure advises the capacity to acknowledge the primary parameter as seems to be, and to put all the others into the $params exhibit. This frees us of the grafting and calling func_get_params, enhances work marks, and makes the code more meaningful.

The new language structure additionally permits going of additional contentions by reference, by prefixing …$params with an ampersand, similar to so: &…$params. This was impractical before with func_get_args.

Contention unloading

Note: on account of nikic for indicating out this element – it got actualized around the season of this present article’s unique composition

Taking after enhanced support for variadic capacities, contention unloading got affirmed, as well. As of recently, the best way to call a capacity with a subjective number of contentions go in as params was by utilizing call_user_func_array meaning truly “call userland work with cluster of params”. This was ungainly and unbalanced, wasn’t bolstered in constructors, was moderate, and required a callback as a string – a capacity name – which implies no IDE bolster as a rule.

Unloading would dispose of the considerable number of drawbacks of said capacity, and actually supplements the variadic bolster seen above. Unloading works like so:

$args = [1, 3, 5, 7, 9];


This is the same as calling

MyClass::someMethod(1, 3, 5, 7, 9);

i.e. going in the contentions in one by one. This works in any concievable situation, from class constructors to being called different circumstances in a call, anything goes. See the RFC connected above for use illustrations and further clarifications.

Consistent Scalar Expressions

This RFC added the capacity to have expressions in spots that exclusive expect static qualities. This means you can now have fundamental number juggling and intelligent structures in consistent revelations, capacities contentions, class properties and so on.

For instance, beforehand, code like this would toss a blunder:

const a = 1;

const b = a?2:100;

Presently, this is not true anymore.

One may contend whether a steady truly is consistent on the off chance that it relies on upon the estimation of another consistent, however such meta discourses are better left for different circumstances.

PHPDBG packaged as a matter of course

The gdb-like debugger, phpdbg, is currently packaged naturally as SAPI. It’s utilized from the order line, or a shortsighted Java UI, indicating break focuses intelligently, modifying programs at runtime and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. It can likewise assess Opcode, and be utilized from withinyour PHP code. Take in more about phpdbg here.

Zip moved forward

The Zip library got a few changes, especially as new techniques. One that emerges particularly is ZipArchive::setPassword($password) which at last permits you to effectively make secret word ensured Zip records.

Bringing in namespaced capacities

According to this RFC, the new form will permit bringing in of namespaced capacities and constants. At this moment we can import namespaces and sorts (classes/interfaces/characteristics) by means of the utilization explanation, similar to so:

namespace foo\bar {

workbaz() {

return ‘’;



namespace {

utilize foo\bar as b;



From 5.6, we’ll have the capacity to utilize the utilization capacity and utilize const proclamations to import a solitary capacity or consistent (even class steady).

namespace {

utilize work foo\bar as foo_bar;

utilizeconst foo\BAZ as FOO_BAZ;
