Implementing Destructors with Multiple Objects in PHP 5
Jan 23, 2008 @ 14:57:00

DevShed has posted part two in their series looking at the use of destructors in PHP5. This time they focus on their use with multiple objects inside of an application.

Destructors can be used in all sorts of clever ways in the context of a given PHP 5 application, mostly in those cases where it's necessary to keep track of the status of certain objects prior to their being destroyed by the PHP interpreter. In this second chapter you'll learn how to work simultaneously with multiple classes that concretely implement their respective destructors.

They revisit their previous example with a simple class that's then extended to allow the flexibility to call the same destructor on multiple instances.
