The ReflectionParameter class

(PHP 5)

Introduction

The ReflectionParameter class retrieves information about function's or method's parameters.

To introspect function parameters, first create an instance of the ReflectionFunction or ReflectionMethod classes and then use their ReflectionFunctionAbstract::getParameters method to retrieve an array of parameters.
