Suggestion for more detailed output of var_dump (video 7:15)

If anyone struggles with the comparison of the var_dumps from minute 7:15 .. I recommend you to try something like this insted of var_dump all three in one:

echo '<pre>';
    echo 'var_dump $status:' . "\t"  . "\t" ;
            var_dump($status);
    echo 'var_dump boolval(\'all\'):'  . "\t" ;
            var_dump(boolval('all'));
    //echo 'var_dump $status == \'all\':'  . "\t"  ;
            //var_dump($status == 'all');
    echo 'var_dump $status === \'all\':'  . "\t"  ;
            var_dump($status === 'all');
echo '</pre>';

Hope this helps one or the other . Cheers
