This package can be used to wrap string and integer values in objects.

It provides functions that create objects to store references to either strings or integer values.

It can also cache references to value objects with the same values to avoid creating needless object copies.

In PHP integers and strings are first class data types but they are not exposed as objects.

You can have variables that represent the same value but each variable occupies a different memory space.

This package is capable of minimizing the memory used by multiple variables representing the same value by encapsulating basic data types in object references and avoid keeping multiple objects of the same value.
