ReflectionClass::export

(PHP 5)

ReflectionClass::exportExports a class

Description

public static string ReflectionClass::export ( mixed $argument [, bool $return = false ] )

Exports a reflected class.

Parameters

argument

The reflection to export.

return

Setting to TRUE will return the export, as opposed to emitting it. Setting to FALSE (the default) will do the opposite.

Return Values

If the return parameter is set to TRUE, then the export is returned as a string, otherwise NULL is returned.

Examples

Example #1 Basic usage of ReflectionClass::export

<?php
class Apple {
    public 
$var1;
    public 
$var2 'Orange';

    public function 
type() {
        return 
'Apple';
    }
}
ReflectionClass::export('Apple');
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Class [ <user> class Apple ] {

  - Static properties [0] {

  - Static methods [0] {

  - Properties [2] {

    Property [ <default> public $var2 ]
