eh, I just want to get a shortcut like

 $id = isset($_GET['id']) ? $_GET['id'] : 0;

Interesting and nice idea (your snippets). I'm sure it's easier for you to read, but my first thought about V() is huh? In truth, it would take me a while to get used to it and if I came across it in someone else's code I would find it more confusing than a ternary operator.


1. Why "V"? Does that stand for Variable?

2. Why the "()" in:

$var = (isset($_GET['var']) ? $_GET['var']) : '');

Why not?

$var = isset($_GET['var']) ? $_GET['var']) : '';

3. Are the "Ramblings of a random software engineer" the "Ramblings of a random-software engineer" or the "Ramblings of a random software-engineer" ?
