I see. But not having decent OOP will take a massive hit on the quality of the code. I don't offer php4 coding services, I've seen no business hit from doing so.
Next to that, is doesn't accept things like 'public' and 'restricted' functions within the class (designated to a var if I am not mistaken). But still you can use classes. I am using a very large SQL class for all of my queries and sorts.
Var is only in PHP5 for backwards compatibility, it is a clone of public. Classes are almost useless without the advanced features php5 brings. The other two permission levels are protected and private, which are both part of php5. I have a tutorial on OOP in PHP5
You've given me a bit of insight on this and for that, thanks a lot Village Idiot. :) Hopefully people like Karl, Salathe and Wildhoney will reply as well (read a couple of their articles). Of course the rest, even the less experienced (if there are some
) are invited to reply with constructive advise and criticism.
Always glad to help.
