I've been working on a PHP project recently, and I'm trying to ensure strict typing in my codebase. I've heard that PHP 7 introduced a feature called "declarations" that can help with enforcing strict typing. However, I'm not quite sure how to utilize this feature effectively.
From what I understand, declaring types for function parameters and return values can help prevent any unexpected type mismatches and improve code reliability. But I haven't really used this feature before, so I'm a bit lost on where and how to start.
Could someone please guide me on how to enforce strict typing using declarations in PHP? It would be great if you could provide some examples or code snippets to illustrate the process. Any additional tips or best practices to keep in mind would also be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help!
