Hi!

I want to have a reference to an object, but PHP3 creates allways a copy of the object:

<html>
<body>
<?php

function cref(&$o)
{
  return $o;
}

class test
{
  var $t;      
}

$t1=new test;
$t1->t=10;

$t2=$t1;
$t2->t=20;

echo $t1->t;  // out: 10 not 20

$t2=cref($t1);
$t2->t=20;

echo $t1->t;  // out: 10 not 20

$t2="t1";
$t3=$$t2;
$t3->t=20;

echo $t1->t;  // out: 10 not 20


?>
</body>
</html>

Hi Sven99,

Sorry but I think you can do that with PHP3.

If you want reffer a variable you'll might use PHP4.

Regards.

Your only way to get a reference:
class test
{
    var $t;
}
function tt( $var)
{
   $var->t = 10;
}

$t1 = new test;
$t1->t = 20;
tt(&$t1);  
print $t1->t;  // should print 10;

at page 66 of PHP manual. Please take a look
