Sum of the values in an array; NULL on failure


This function simply totals the numeric values of the elements of array and returns the result. If array contains other arrays or objects, they're skipped. Non-numeric values in array are internally cast to their numeric equivalents for the addition; this casting is internal only and these values still have their original values and types after the call.
