Comment: Intransitive equality and comparison in PHP (Score 1) 729

One of the many lovely things about PHP, though this time it's not the only culprit.

$ php -r 'var_dump("foo" == TRUE); var_dump("foo" == 0); var_dump(TRUE == 0);'
bool(true)
bool(true)
bool(false)

$ php -r 'var_dump(NULL == 0); var_dump(NULL < -1);'
bool(true)
bool(true)

Strange, and not in a good way. Makes the mathematical part of my brain explode.
