8. Book Review – Object-Oriented PHP, Concepts, Techniques and Code by Peter Lavin

9. The PHP Global Statement
One way to make an outside variable available to a function is to use the PHP global statement. The global statement brings the outside variable into the function code so you can use the variable.
10. The PHP Constant
The PHP constant is very similar to a PHP variable in that it is used to store a value but, unlike a variable, the value cannot be changed. This can be very important when coding PHP programs.
