I'm fairly new to PHP and I have a question about declaring the return type for a function. I've been learning about writing functions in PHP and I understand how to create functions, but I'm unsure about how to declare the return type of a function.
I want to make sure that the function I write returns a specific data type, as it will help ensure the data I receive is correct and of the expected type. Could someone please explain to me how I can declare the return type for a function in PHP? I would really appreciate any guidance or examples you can provide.
Thanks in advance!
