PHP Inheritance – Calling parent’s functions in child object

Before I begin, let me just say that I have tested this in PHP 5.2. I don’t know if this will work for PHP 5.3. If anyone can confirm that it does, it will be great.

You can do it with parent::someFunctionName(). You can do this from within an overloaded function also. It was confusing for me at first, so I decided to test it out myself. Below is some same code that will help you understand it too.
