I hope you're doing well. I have a question related to PHP and casting variables as object types in foreach loops.
So, I've been working on a project where I need to iterate over an array of objects using a foreach loop. However, I need to cast each variable as an object type within the loop. I know that PHP is a weakly typed language, but I need to perform some specific operations on each object within the loop.
To give you some context, let's say I have an array called `$myArray` which contains multiple objects of the same class. Each object has properties like `name`, `age`, and `location`. Now, I want to iterate over this array using a foreach loop and perform some calculations or operations on these objects. But in order to do that, I need to explicitly cast the variable as an object type.
I'm aware that I can assign the object within the loop to a separate variable and then cast it, like `$obj = (object) $variable;`. However, that seems a bit inefficient to me as I would need to create another variable just to hold the casted object.
So, my question is, is there a way to directly cast the variable as an object type within the foreach loop? I want to avoid creating an extra variable just for the casting process. Is there any specific syntax or technique that I can use here?
I would really appreciate any guidance or suggestions you can provide. Thank you in advance for your help!
