PHP 8.1.15 Released!

Iterables

Iterable is a built-in compile time type alias for array|Traversable. From its introduction in PHP 7.1.0 and prior to PHP 8.2.0, iterable was a built-in pseudo-type that acted as the aforementioned type alias and can be used as a type declaration. An iterable type can be used in foreach and with yield from within a generator.

Note:

Functions declaring iterable as a return type may also be generators.

Example #1 Iterable generator return type example

<?php

function gen(): iterable {
yield
1;
yield
2;
yield
3;
}

?>
