Ivo Jansch's Blog:
System.out.print in PHP
March 09, 2007 @ 07:12:44

Ivo Jansch discovered something interesting by way of an applicant's resume - a hidden "trick" that PHP pulls on the user when they try to use a Java-like syntax with System.

So yesterday I was reviewing a code sample that a job applicant had written during a test and I encountered the following line of code: It's not hard to guess what his background was :), but I was initially stunned that this actually works in php.

After a little investigating (and ruling out the Java Bridge), Ivo found that the line was being interpreted literally and was just being handled as a string instead of a constant. He gives two other examples to help with clarification.
