Re: [PHP] Extending SplDoublyLinkedList with specific child types and avoiding strict notices

I don't believe this is possible due to not being able to narrow type hints
for arguments in extended classes. However, you could just remove the
typehint, and check yourself, something like:

        public class push($item)
                if (!($item instanceof SpecificChildTypeClass::class))
                    throw new TypeError(sprintf(
                        'Argument 1 passed to %s::push() must be of the
type %s, %s given',
                       gettype($item) != 'object' ? gettype($item) :
