Nope. Nothing there. Those templates are for when you create new blurbs of
code, not modifying existing code.

There is a formatter however, sadly it doesn't have an option to force these
(you'd think that would be the perfect place to do this too huh.) In fact, I
posted this here:


> Please note that <?= is also valid and should be replaced to "<?php echo"

Yeah, I don't like that style. I prefer the <?= $foo ?> version. It's
shorter, cleaner and easier to read.

Many people mistakenly think that short version is going to be deprecated
away. It is not. The PHP Devs have already clarified only the "<?" version
is, not this one.


> Also the short if version "1 == 1 ? True : false" should be replaced if
i'm correct.

You are not. ;-)

The Ternary operator statement would never go away. It is a standard
comparison operator in pretty much any language and would be completely
stupid of the PHP Devs to deviate that far from the norm.


Plus I love that operator and use it quite frequently. However, I use it
like this just for clarity:

echo "your result is ".((1 == 1) ? 'true' : 'false').'<br>';

I've used ZS for 4+ years now, and comicaly have never even used those
little down arrows next to a file. HAHAH! Good to know. Although it is a
little strange as they seem to only be where you use a "=" assignment. It
doesn't know about "->" or other instances of that variable (like if you
echo it or something). But still could prove useful.

Whoa nelly! That prints out WAAAAAAY too much information ;-)

But thanks. Not sure why I didn't think of that one. Maybe because at one
time I did use it, got sensory overload from the amount of data it spews to
the page, and then blocked it out of my mind for future use. :)

There are only 11 types of people in this world. Those that think binary
jokes are funny, those that don't, and those that don't know binary.
