    @JREAMdesign Cool tips, thanks. Also a nice tip: Use preincrementation
    instead of postincrementation anywhere its possible because
    preincrementation is about 10% faster then postincrementation. Especially
    in for-loops with huge iterations: for ($a = 0; $a < 500000; $a++) { } //standard for ($a = 0; $a < 500000; ++$a) { } //faster!! Notice that $a will also start at 0 inside the parentheses in the ++$a example (and not at 1), so you have not to worry about the indexes of your arrays! :)

    @JREAMdesign As a matter of a fact, yes it does. The method I displayed, is
    2-3 times faster at handling strings. The difference is really noticed when
    dealing with large amounts of strings..
