Hmm... why is that ?
Am I reading manual too briefly, or is there something with the operators ? might be 
bogus, but please enlighten me:P

btw: I thought that there's no seperate boolean type =]

function foo(){
        return true;

if(foo() == 'whatever you like'){
        echo '!?!? why is that equal ?';

function paranoid(){
        return 1;

if(!(paranoid() == (string) 'whatever you like')){
        echo 'hmm??';
