Well some resources for learning it first as these are usually the best
source of information:



I really recomend reading and following these as it will undoubtably
help with learning OOP with PHP/MySQL.

As a simple example here is a class, functions and how to use:

// class.inc.php
class TestOOP
 function ChkPHPFuncs( $function_name )
  if( empty( $function_name ) ) {
   return 1;
  } else {
   if( !function_exists( $function_name ) ) {
    return 1;
   } else {
    return 0;

To use within a script:
//include our class file so lib is available
include 'class.inc.php';

// check for mcrypt functions compiled with php
$list = array( 'mcrypt_cbc', 'mcrypt_cfb', 'mcrypt_create_iv',
'mcrypt_decrypt', 'mcrypt_ecb', 'mcrypt_encrypt' );

// initialize class file so we may use functions from that class
$x = new TestOOP();

//now use $x as our handle for any function from within class file
for( $i = 0; $i < count( $list ); $i++ ) {
 echo $x->chkPHPFuncs( $list[$i] );

Also here are some resources from PHP.net for reference:
