PHP 7

PHP 7

About php 7:
- PHP 7 was released in December 2015.
- The main reason behind the PHP7 after PHP5.X is, PHP6 had already existed in the past as an experimental project but never reached the production phase and also there had been many resources available about PHP6.

Features of php 7:
- PHP7 can boost your application development by using the latest resources.
- It boosts application execution twice but you will also need fewer servers to serve the same amount of users.
- It improves Error Handling where you replace fatal and catchable fatal errors with exceptions.
- It allows you to access class member on cloning of class.
- It allows you to create Anonymous classes.
- Anonymous classes are useful for simple one-off objects. With these classes, you can define a class and instantiate an object inline.

- Example:
class Category {
}

$category = new Category {
public function getCategory() {
return "home";
}
};
