the sign bit "A signed bit field has a length of 1 bit."
including: - Whether or not to pass by ref (replaces the old arg_types, with arg_info) - Argument name (for future use, maybe introspection) - Class/Interface name (for type hints) - If a class/interface name is available, whether to allow a null instance Both user and builtin functions share the same data structures. To declare a builtin function that expects its first arg to be an instance of class 'Person', its second argument as a regular arg, and its third by reference, use: ZEND_BEGIN_ARG_INFO(my_func_arg_info, 0) ZEND_ARG_OBJ_INFO(0, someone, Person, 1) ZEND_ARG_PASS_INFO(0) ZEND_ARG_PASS_INFO(1) ZEND_END_ARG_INFO(); and use my_func_arg_info as the arg_info parameter to the ZEND_FE() family of macros. The first arg to each ZEND_ARG_*() macro is whether or not to pass by ref. The boolean arg to ZEND_BEGIN_ARG_INFO() tells the engine whether to treat the arguments for which there's no explicit information as pass by reference or not. The boolean argument to ZEND_ARG_OBJ_INFO() (4th arg) is whether or not to allownull values.
