comment Why different languages have different syntax?
@Bartdude The only reason you don't feel comfortable with PHP's use for the dot is because you learned a language that used it differently before you learned PHP. If you had started with Perl (where PHP inherited most of its syntax from), then "un-intuitive and disturbing" would mean using the dot for anything but string concatenation.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Please stop bumping the question with minor edits. Almost every link in your answer is unnecessary. This is a software development site, people are expected to know or be able to find out on their own what an operating system is, for example.

comment Should I check parameter before using it in methods?
Nitpick: Your empty($value) check doesn't make sense. It will pass for anything that isn't empty (eg Hello world), but will fail for 0, which is an int value. How about using is_int() instead?
