 ==== Type Declarations ==== ==== Type Declarations ====
 This RFC does support type declarations for parameters and return types. This issue was noted multiple times on the mailing list during the short closures RFC as something that bothered voters. Therefore this RFC permits them but the authors discourage their general use in arrow functions. This RFC does support type declarations for parameters and return types.

 +Here are some examples to show the syntax:
 +
 +<PHP>
 +fn (array $x) => $x
 +fn (): int => 42
 +</PHP>
 +
 +==== References ====
 +Parameters and return values can be passed/returned by reference. As mentioned elsewhere, implicitly bound variables will be bound //by value// and not //by reference//. References go in the usual places:
 +
 +<PHP>
 +fn &(array &$xs) => $xs
 +</PHP>
 +
 +==== Static Arrow Functions ====
 +The implementation currently supports static closures, for example <php>static fn($x) => static::get($x)</php>. While supported it is uncertain whether it should be included in the final version. Having the implementation support it allows testers to determine usefulness and value.

 Unfortunately the ''fn'' keyword must be a full keyword and not just a reserved function name; this is to break the ambiguities with ''<nowiki>=></nowiki>'' for array and yield keys. Unfortunately the ''fn'' keyword must be a full keyword and not just a reserved function name; this is to break the ambiguities with ''<nowiki>=></nowiki>'' for array and yield keys.
  
-Ilija Tovilo analyzed the top 1,000 PHP repositories on GitHub to find usages of ''fn''. [The gist](https://gist.github.com/morrisonlevi/473a7e0cb6e59c830224b1c71b8da28cprovides more information, but the rough findings are that all known existing usages of ''fn'' are in tests except one case where it is a namespace segment.+Ilija Tovilo analyzed the top 1,000 PHP repositories on GitHub to find usages of ''fn''.

 This RFC omitted this feature for these reasons. If arrow functions are accepted and become more common it may make sense to revisit this feature. This RFC omitted this feature for these reasons. If arrow functions are accepted and become more common it may make sense to revisit this feature.
