Mike Lively's Blog:
Late Static Binding (LSB) forward_static_call()
April 09, 2008 @ 11:24:19

On his blog, Mike Lively has posted a look at some of the work he's been doing on patches for the late static binding functionality to be included in PHP, including an example of the updates in action.

This weekend I wrapped up a few small tests and sent the patch in and it was subsequently pushed to php 5.3 and php 6.0. Now, this is not at all the way I wanted things to work, in all honesty I think the patch is pretty hokey but unfortunately nobody really spoke up in support of the changes I wanted to make to parent:: in regards to LSB.

His example shows how to override a static method and push that new method's execution to the parent class (in two ways - safe using forward_static_call and the not so safe calling itself with a parent:: override).
