<?php

class A
{
    public 
$public 1;

    protected 
$protected 2;

    private 
$private 3;
}

class 
extends A
{
    private 
$private 4;
}

$object = new B;
$object->dynamic 5;
$object->{'6'} = 6;

var_dump(get_mangled_object_vars($object));

class 
AO extends ArrayObject
{
    private 
$private 1;
}

$arrayObject = new AO(['x' => 'y']);
$arrayObject->dynamic 2;
