PHP RFC: get_debug_type


This RFC proposes to add a new function get_debug_type that will return the given type of a variable.

This function would differ from gettype in that it would return native type names, e.g. “int” rather than “integer” and would automatically resolve class names.

Backward Incompatible Changes


Proposed PHP Version(s)

PHP 8.0

Proposed Voting Choices

Yes / no vote on adding the new function.

Yes / no on resource names be resolved - Would appear as resource(resource_type).

(Optional) A vote on the name, if there is not a clear majority consensus during RFC discussion.
