Continuing their look at static methods in PHP, DevShed has posted this new tutorial (the second in the series) focusing on using the methods to create a simple loader application.

[...] It's worthwhile to mention, however, that it was necessary to create an instance of the aforementioned class to load a determined file. This is a process that can be completely avoided in terms of good coding habits. But how can this be achieved? Well, it's feasible to statically call the class's load()" method, preventing its unwanted instantiation.
