Noticing that PHP 5 is adding more higher-level functionality such as closures and knowing that it's a relatively unsafe language to work, I began to think of ways to improve the safety and security of PHP code. One way to do this is to use Design By Contract and I've created a new project as part of Higher Order PHP for that: PHP-Contracts. The library is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License so that you can use it as part of proprietary PHP 5 projects.

Contracts state what preconditions, postconditions and invariants exist for classes and methods. For example, a method that returns the result of adding two positive numbers together will have two preconditions (both parameters must be positive numbers), and one postcondition (the result must be a positive number) Contracts help us define what exactly a function should do and they make it difficult for us to add any code that shouldn't be there. It is true that PHP has added type-hints, but those don't go far enough.
