what in PHP is similar to Actionscript 's "is" operator?

There are not really similar, but both can provide the same results (solution wise).For example, + operator in action script can be demonstrated by simple codes below

trace ( 3 + 1);

Above expression should deliver an aswer of 4. While in PHP the same expression can be written as

echo ( 3 + 1);

However, in PHP parenthesis is not required. So, this will just work fine

echo 3 + 1 ;

While in actionscript, this

trace 3 + 1;

gives us an error.

In the case concatenation, they are similar with the only exemption of the parenthesis.

in actionscript

trace("3" + 1);


echo ("3" + 1 );

Keep in mind that the the above only 1 is considered as integer. In PHP, it gives you more freedom to change type from one to the other. For example,

$x = "3";
$y = 1 ;

echo ((int)($x) + $y);

gives us an integer 4, while the example before it gives us string 3 concatenated with integer 1.

Like what i have said in the chat box..


trace( 50 == "50");

will give us true

while in PHP

echo ( 50 == "50");

should give us false.

Actionscript will give us false if

trace (50 === "50");

PHP is more exquisite, because

echo ("toy" === "Toy");

will gives us false
