Description Author  

This class can be used to load and adapt a class according to the PHP version that is currently running.

It loads a given class script file and preprocess the code to make PHP version dependent adjustments.

It looks for special tags of the form %PHP# in comments of the class file to load. If the number in # matches the current PHP version, the lines are uncommented.

Version 2 now has tighter version control including ranges, as well as automatic variable globalization outside of classes and functions.

PROS: you can put if clause like structures into parts of your script otherwise inaccessible.

CONS: debugging loses effectiveness when errors occur. PHP locates all errors of included files in the eval statement.

I'm working on a FIX to the CON :-)

Prize: One book of choice by Packt
PHP has evolved a lot over the time. The way certain things can be done has changed according to the PHP version.

This class uses Aspect Oriented Programming principles to adapt PHP code according to the PHP version in use.

It provides means to add or remove different code sections depending on the PHP version that is running. This makes possible to write code that takes the most of the latest PHP versions, while it still runs on older versions.
