I've seen some individuals use the following method to validate whether or not an attempted connection to mySQL went through.

$CON = mysqli_connect("localhost","root","123456","test")if($CON){......}

First of all, I dont understand how an object evaluates to a boolean true. And secondly, how come mysqli_connect returns absolutely nothing when it does not work?
