'flags' => FILTER_FLAG_ALLOW_OCTAL,
);
$var filter_var('0755'FILTER_VALIDATE_INT$options);

// for filter that only accept flags, you can pass them directly
$var filter_var('oops'FILTER_VALIDATE_BOOLEANFILTER_NULL_ON_FAILURE);

// for filter that only accept flags, you can also pass as an array
$var filter_var('oops'FILTER_VALIDATE_BOOLEAN,
                  array(

$empty = (empty($surname) || empty($givennames));
    
$notstrings = (!is_string($surname) || !is_string($givennames));
    if (
$empty || $notstrings) {
        return 
false;
    } else {
        return
