<?php
$x = new stdClass;
$y = new stdClass;
$z = new Judy;

var_dump($x, $y); // object(stdClass)#1 (0) { } object(stdClass)#2 (0) { }

Open in new window


I added $z=new Judy;

It's tough to say what's going on with such a limited amount of info (for me at least).  I' not sure where the classes are created, or whether or not you have included them in the file that holds the above mentioned code.

stdClass is a php generic class, like Object in other languages. It is already a defined type. Judy is not defined.

A search of the PHP.net web site for stdclass finds this page:

generic class, but where is the class?


from http://www.php.net/manual/en/reserved.classes.php
Standard Defined Classes ¶

These classes are defined in the standard set of functions included in the PHP build.

Directory
Created by dir().
stdClass
Created by typecasting to object.
__PHP_Incomplete_Class
Possibly created by unserialize().

There are not many words in the php manual
I still do not understand.

Here is something that does the same things as StdClass.  It's just an empty class definition - no properties or methods.  You can add your own properties.

<?php // demo/temp_stdclass.php
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
error_reporting(E_ALL);

Class StandardClass
{
}

Open in new window

{
}

$x=new StandardClass();
$y=new StandardClass();
var_dump($x,$y);

Open in new window



object(StandardClass)#1 (0) { } object(StandardClass)#2 (0) { }

I also do not understand that the notation can be
$x=new StandardClass();
$y=new StandardClass();

or
$x=new StandardClass;
$y=new StandardClass;

It's just the way PHP code works, that's all.  If you put the parenthetical expression after the statement you get it to run the class constructor (if any).  This would make sense if there were arguments needed in the constructor.

A generic class and sometimes classes have constructors.

Thanks.
