Using ArrayHelper

toInteger

use Joomla\Utilities\ArrayHelper;

$input = array(
    "width" => "100",
    "height" => "200xxx",
    "length" => "10.3"
);
$result = ArrayHelper::toInteger($input);
var_dump($result);

Result:

array(3) {
  'width' =>
  int(100)
  'height' =>
  int(200)
  'length' =>
  int(10)
}

toObject

use Joomla\Utilities\ArrayHelper;

class Book {
    public $name;
    public $author;
    public $genre;
    public $rating;
}
class Author {
    public $name;
    public $born;
}
$input = array(
    "name" => "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy",
    "author" => array(
        "name" => "Douglas Adams",
        "born" => 1952,
        "died" => 2001),
    "genre" => "comic science fiction",
    "rating" => 10
);
$book = ArrayHelper::toObject($input, 'Book');
var_dump($book);

Result:

class Book#1 (4) {
  public $name =>
  string(36) "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
  public $author =>
  class Book#2 (6) {
    public $name =>
    string(13) "Douglas Adams"
    public $author =>
    NULL
    public $genre =>
    NULL
    public $rating =>
    NULL
    public $born =>
    int(1952)
    public $died =>
    int(2001)
  }
  public $genre =>
  string(21) "comic science fiction"
  public $rating =>
  int(10)
}

toString

use Joomla\Utilities\ArrayHelper;

$input = array(
    "fruit" => "apple",
    "pi" => 3.14
);
echo ArrayHelper::toString($input);

Result:

  'name' =>
  string(40) "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone"
  'author' =>
  array(2) {
    'name' =>
