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 1000000000 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;
