<?php
namespace baseFile{
  class inBaseFile{
    function __construct($who){
      echo "<br>Hello $who i am class: ".__CLASS__." namespace: ".__NAMESPACE__."<br>";
    }
    
  }
}
require_once('tasks/business.php');
class fred
{
  function __construct($who)
  {
    echo "Hullo $who I am fred";
  }
}
class james
{
  function __construct($who){
    echo "<br>Hello $who I am ".__CLASS__."<br>";
  }
}


$x = new fred('inside');
$y = new \business\monkey('default');
$z= new james('barbara');
?>

Open in new window



when namespace basefile is at the bottom
error: namespace must be qualified at the top

when namespace is at the top:
error: all code must be in namespace



<?php
namespace business {
  class monkey
  {
    function __construct($who)
    {
      echo "Hello $who from monkey";
    }
  }
}
?>

Open in new window


how is putting namespace in running file any different than creating another file and require_once('tasks/business.php');

If you use namespaces in a file everything must be in a namespace. This does not mean everything must be in the same namespace.

namespace { // global code
session_start();
$a = MyProject\connect();
echo MyProject\Connection::start();
}
