"PHP also now supports a whole host of object oriented features, if that suits your fancy. You'll find abstract classes for prototyping, use of the final classes to prevent further subclassing. PHP also supports overloading, thus multiple functions with the same name but different parameters, allow the PHP interpreter to choose which function to call at runtime. You'll also find private and protected member variables as well as constructors, and destructors.
