I agree. IIRC, last time optional type declarations for attributes were discussed Dmitry optimized/refactored something in the engine that would reduce the performance hit. Do we have a guess at how big that performance hit would be? I, for one, would gladly trade a couple of percent of performance (considering the huge gains in performance PHP 7 brought) to be able to use these type declarations in my code. -- PHP Internals - PHP Runtime Development Mailing List To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
