A collection of mini-rants today, from a couple of hours spent hacking together a bit of PHP:

  1. Which numpty decided that the default behaviour of a switch statement should be to fall through. It's almost never what you want!
  2. In the same theme, which numpty decided to make assignment and equality use different operators, to make assignment single-equals, and to not have any kind of warning if you use single-equals in an if statement.
  3. Why does PHP not have a usable variable type for dates? Even classic VB has one!
