Tiffany Brown's Blog:
PHP Quickie More on is_numeric vs. ctype_digit
August 17, 2006 @ 07:32:52

Tiffany Brown has posted an update to her look into is_numeric versus ctype_digit today, mentioning an issue she came across when testing based on the differences she found in her previous posting.

Just a quick follow-up to my post on is_numeric vs. ctype_digit. There is one quirk with ctype_digit that may affect your choice about whether to use it.

When the string in question is empty, ctype_digit returns TRUE. However, when it is null, ctype_digit will return FALSE.

She includes code to illustrate, noting the return of each function.
