I read that php still do not support the Multiple Inheritance.
And the industry is still using PHP without this Inheritance.

As per web project designs.. there are low number of requirements where actually the Multiple Inheritance is used.

But as to stand in the the lane of C#, java, etc... php need to have that feature.

PHP supports inheritance since PHP 3. Neither PHP, nor Java, nor C# support multiple inheritance. PHP 5 supports interfaces like Java and C#. That addresses most purposes developers would want to use multiple inheritance.

C++ supports multiple inheritance but it is confusing and often you need to solve conflicts to sort from which class functions or variables are inherited.
