In PHP, the generators are always accomplished through the yield keyword, which allowed users return a value to the calling code without ending execution of the generator function.
According to this, even without creating that actual array, users still can iterate over an array’s values or objects. That absolutely helps memory saving, it is more significant in asynchronous languages.
And the finally keyword that lets users attach code to a try catch block which should be run whether or not an exception is thrown. From that, some users might think finally is useless. However, the finally block can bring users convenience by helping them assure the code within it always runs before normal execution resumes.
More than that, users are always forced to write cleaner code with previous PHP versions. Now, it is still preferable while abandoning array and string literal directly in new PHP 5.5.
