Devshed continues their series looking at the use of destructors in PHP5 applications with part three, a method for keeping track of objects you’ve created during execution.

In this third part of the series, I’m going to show you how to retrieve some useful information about a specific object, including its properties and methods, prior to its being destroyed by the PHP parser via the implementation of a simple destructor.

Their new user class extracts the details about each of the objects right before they’re destroyed via a call to get_object_vars and a loop to display the property and its value.
