The WeakReference class

(PHP 7 >= 7.4.0)

Introducción

Weak references allow the programmer to retain a reference to an object which does not prevent the object from being destroyed. They are useful for implementing cache like structures.

Nota:

The class WeakReference is not to be confused with the class WeakRef of the Weakref extension.

WeakReferences cannot be serialized.

Sinopsis de la Clase

WeakReference {
/* Métodos */
public __construct ( void )
public static create ( object $referent ) : WeakReference
public get ( void ) : ?object
}

WeakReference Examples

Ejemplo #1 Basic WeakReference Usage

<?php
$obj 
= new stdClass;
$weakref WeakReference::create($obj);
var_dump($weakref->get());
unset(
$obj);
var_dump($weakref->get());
?>

El resultado del ejemplo sería algo similar a:

object(stdClass)#1 (0) {
}
NULL
