Working with Instances

Table of contents:


Although the functionality provided by ZE1 / PHP4 classes is limited at best, they do have the advantage of being compatible with the widely installed PHP4 base currently in production. The simple techniques covered in this chapter will allow you to write functional, versatile code that compiles and runs today and will continue working tomorrow.

In the next chapter, you'll find out what the buzz surrounding PHP5 is really about and why, if you want OOP functionality, you'll find a reason to upgrade and never look back.
