Tutorial by Topics: coalesce



The null coalescing operator (??) has been added as syntactic sugar for the common case of needing to use a ternary in conjunction with isset().

It returns its first operand if it exists and is not NULL; otherwise it returns its second operand.

Coalesce returns the first none null argument from a set of arguments. Only the first non null argument is return, all subsequent arguments are ignored. The function will evaluate to null if all arguments are null.
