echo (object)$data->something

or even better, wrap the whole thing in a 'result object'..

class resultObject {

protected $data = array();

public function __construct($data)
{
    $this->data = (array)$data;
}

public function __get($k) {
    return (isset($this->data[$k])) ? $this->data[$k] : null;
}

}


hope it helps,
