objbox 1.0Public Domain5PHP 5, Data types


This package can process events with collections of objects.

There is a container class that can hold a collection of objects treating it like an array.

The container class can invoke custom functions to all objects in the collection, sort the objects, dispatch events using an object handler class, and perform all other operations typical of arrays.
