DevShed:
Defining Public and Protected Methods with Member Visibility in PHP 5
June 12, 2008 @ 07:51:13

DevShed continues their series looking at variable scoping in PHP5 classes with this new look at using the public and protected keywords to "restrict member visibility".

Now that you know what will be treated in this fourth chapter of the series, it's time to learn how to declare and implement public and protected methods with PHP 5 classes. Of course, as always I'm going to address this useful topic by using a hands-on approach, which means that there's a bunch of code samples ahead, waiting patiently for you.

They talk about calling methods globally first and then move into the keyword restrictions. They show the difference between a public method/variable and a protected one, including how to get at the protected members from a child class.
