Rule string_length_to_empty

String tests for empty must be done against '', not with strlen.

Warning

Using this rule is risky.

Risky when strlen is overridden, when called using a stringable object, also no longer triggers warning when called using non-string(able).

Examples

Example #1

--- Original
+++ New
-<?php $a = 0 === strlen($b) || \STRLEN($c) < 1;
+<?php $a = '' === $b || $c === '';
