Precedence of Operations
Data Type Automatic Conversion
- PHP supports 6 basic types of operations: bitwise, arithmetic, comparison, logical, string, and assignment operations.
- PHP performs automatic type conversion, if an operand has a data type that does match the operator.
- Write your expressions properly with operand data types match operators to avoid automatic type conversion.
