Class auto assigning to Variable in PHP

–1 vote

I have a situation where, for some unknown reason, where each class that finishes its __contruct{} function, that class gets automatically assigned to a variable - other than the variable I specify.


class Hello { private $_world = 'World'; __construct(){} }
$clsHello = new Hello();
echo 'The variable $hello is '.gettype($hello)."n".print_r($hello,true);


The variable $hello is object
Hello Object
 [_world:Hello:private] => World

There is no statement in my application that assigns an instance of the class to another variable, the name being a lowercase variant of the class name.

Would there be a PHP function that would do this as a side-effect?

I am more interested in learning what is happening as opposed to rolling back to a previous version. (A backup copy functions fine. A file compare does not reveal any likely suspects.)

This isn't even valid PHP

 $ php -a
Interactive shell

php > class Hello { private $_world = 'World'; __construct(){} }
PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '__construct' (T_STRING),
expecting function (T_FUNCTION) in php shell code on line 1

I have a client where their next auto-increment number just jumped from 2300 to ********** for reasons not understood. They want it set back.

Options such as dropping the primary key and rebuilding the index is NOT possible -- this is a relational table thing. So, is there a way (programmatically) to set the next number in an auto-increment?

Something like:

alter table abc auto_increment = 2301;

Any ideas of why this happened?

I've tried the following code but the $call variable is not available in the pcntl_fork child. Searching the web, I've found posts that claim that all variables defined before pcntl_fork are copied to the child. I've also found posts that claim that no variables are passed/copied to the child. So, which of them is true and how should I correct my code to make it work?

 $call = str_replace('@@', '&', $_GET['call']);

 if ($pid = pcntl_fork())
     $previousCalls=file("calls.txt", FILE_IGNORE_NEW_LINES | FILE_SKIP_EMPTY_LINES);
     if (!in_array($call, $previousCalls))
         file_put_contents("calls.txt", $call."\n", FILE_APPEND);
     function displayUrl($url)
         $ch = curl_init($url);
         curl_setopt ( $ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
         $curlResult = curl_exec($ch);
         list($headers,$content) = explode("\r\n\r\n",$curlResult,2);
         foreach (explode("\r\n",$headers) as $hdr)
             if ($hdr != 'Transfer-Encoding: chunked')
         echo $content;
