instantiating object with "&new ObjectName();"?

Recommended Posts

Only place I seen & referenced in code before is when you want to pass a variable into a function that you want to modify...

What does it mean in this different context, before the instantiation of an object?:
$var = &new ObjectName();

an example of where i see this is here although to me it seems like it is not needed just to create the object: http://www.devshed.com/c/a/PHP/The-Basics-of-Serializing-Objects-in-PHP/1/
$dataSaver=&new DataSaver('This string will be saved to file');


thanks in advance.

There is a difference (in PHP 4) and it's explained pretty well at this manual page:
