system.methodSignature

This method takes one parameter, the name of a method implemented by the XML-RPC server.

It returns an array of possible signatures for this method. A signature is an array of types. The first of these types is the return type of the method, the rest are parameters.

Multiple signatures (ie. overloading) are permitted: this is the reason that an array of signatures are returned by this method.

Signatures themselves are restricted to the top level parameters expected by a method. For instance if a method expects one array of structs as a parameter, and it returns a string, its signature is simply "string, array". If it expects three integers, its signature is "string, int, int, int".

If no signature is defined for the method, a none-array value is returned. Therefore this is the way to test for a non-signature, if $resp below is the response object from a method call to system.methodSignature:

$v=$resp->value();
if ($v->kindOf()!="array") {
  // then the method did not have a signature defined
}
			

See the introspect.php demo included in this distribution for an example of using this method.
