understanding functions and classes

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

Code: [Select]
class person {
var $name = "Jimmy Goe";

function get_name(){

echo $this->name;

I am playing with this very small script that I made using a tutorial. I can get the script to echo out the name using the code above. What I don't get is why I can't do this

Code: [Select]class person {
var $name;

function get_name(){
$name = "Jimmy Goe"
echo $this->name;

then of course in my index page, I am calling it like this
Code: [Select$joe = new person();


If you decide to answer this question, please be as detailed as possible, I am a newb as you can see and the more information you give or the simpler the explanation, the better.

Thanks for helping
