FFS PHP. If I have a failing json_encode() because one of the items isn’t a string, WHY DON’T YOU RAISE AN EXCEPTION

    sorry to say, but it is because PHP! 😁

    Well, they do state that they return false when it failed in the docs. Is it then really php's fault for you not reading the docs?

    RTFM, seriously.

    The docs says what it returns. That’s not the point and not what I’m complaining about. Stuff like this should throw an exception.

    @arcsector The docs literally tell you what it returns when it fails. Failing to encode JSON should not be an exception.
