your joke misses my point. while the technology to do what you speak of isn't here, the technology to have run time errors when stupid code that I wrote runs has been around for a number of decades. yes, we have to deal with imperfect languages but that doesn't mean we can't strive to do better.

But I've already shown you an example of stupid code being accepted by another language! It's unavoidable with every language in existence so why single one out, especially for doing something that is often an advantage (whether you like it or not) to the programmer?

You showed me 1 thing and I'd bet you could show me a handful more. PHP, the way I see it, has a few dozen handful more pitfalls with things I don't see as being that advantages. You keep saying how automatic number to string and string to number conversions are so helpful, and I agree they can be, but that's just 1 thing. The issue is a lot more than just 1 thing.
