In other languages I would just use 'return;' to break out of the function if necessary. How does PHP 7.1 go about that? Can you still do that, since you're not returning anything with it?

It's the same with PHP, this is just about declaring that this particular method must not return anything back. So, in case you accidentally try to return something, the interpreter will give you an error so you will know that you made a mistake.
