It is possible to call functions from a static context
<?php
class SemiStaticClass {
public function echoWhoIAm() {
echo 'I\'m ' . __FUNCTION__ . ' in class ' . __CLASS__;
// If this doesn't exists, then this function is statically called
if (! isset($this)) {
echo '... and I\'m statically called! Nice!';
}
echo "\n";
}
}
$a = new SemiStaticClass();
$a->echoWhoIAm();
SemiStaticClass::echoWhoIAm();
// Will output:
// I'm echoWhoIAm in class SemiStaticClass
// I'm echoWhoIAm in class SemiStaticClass... and I'm statically called! Nice!
