explain this small piece of PHP code please.....

Recommended Posts


[b]$CFG->[/b]wwwroot  = 'http://site.local';

i can't find -> anywhere in my two php books or online to tell me what this piece of code is doing...

I'll take a guess that it's seeting a variable to 'http://site.local' but don't really understand why the -> is used or what it's there for...?

thanks

You are reading the wrong books. Try the php manual

That has to do with object-oriented coding. An object is mainly a name for an instance of a class.

In this case, $CFG is an object that has a property ('wwwroot'), and this property is being set to 'http://site.local' .

Somewhere in your script(s) there's probably a '$CFG = new NameofClass();' line. Find it and then check the class.

For a better understanding, google php oop tutorial and read some or check here [url=http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials/48/0.php]http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials/48/0.php [/url]
