I've been working on a PHP application and I'm currently dealing with the task of defining options or settings for the configuration. I was wondering if it's possible to use an enumeration for this purpose.
Basically, I want to avoid using strings or constants to define the possible configuration values because it lacks type safety and can lead to errors if I mistype a value. Instead, I've heard that using an enumeration could be a more robust and organized approach.
I'm not very familiar with using enumerations in PHP applications, so I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences. Is it common to use enumerations in PHP configurations? If so, how would I go about implementing and using them effectively?
Your insights and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
