DevShed:
Using the Clone Magic Function in PHP 5
June 15, 2009 @ 12:04:25

New on DevShed today is the latest article in their "magic functions" series. This time they focus on the "clone" method to create exact copies of current objects.

In this fifth part of a seven-part tutorial on magic functions, we'll briefly review the sleep and wakeup functions, and then tackle the clone function. [...] So, with that goal in mind, in this fifth part of the series I'm going to take a closer look at the "__clone()" method, which as its name suggests, is called behind the scenes when using the "clone" PHP keyword.

Their example code adds on to the previous examples using "__get" and "__set" and adds in a method to catch the cloning of an object. It only outputs a string ("Cloning user object") when its called, but it lets you get the idea.
