I know, this is a weird question, but...
I am working right now on an inherited project, and finding this quite a bit.
$objSomething -> $object
There is a lot of this -> in the code that I am working with. The explination from my friend says that $objSomething is a class and $object is a function within that class.
1.) what is this symbol called or this technique at least, so that I may look it up and get a better understanding of it.
2.) does the first item have to be a class, and the second have to be a function, or can it $function -> $array.
3.) if it can be an array, can I use those items by index as normal as below?
$myInfo = $objSomething -> $array; echo $myInfo; echo $myInfo;
If $objSomething is in fact a class (as suspected), are there any PHP Native Classes that we have access to? If so, where can I find these.
and last but not least. Does anyone know of a place that has good information about this technique? I want to understand every aspect of it so that I know exactly what this inherited code is doing.
Thank you so much in advance
