Wow! Here goes:
Open-bracket, dollar item hypen greater-than, get service id, no all one word
but with a capital S and I. Open and close brackets, question mark, dollar item
again, then a hyphen and greater-than, that get service id and brackets bit
again, exactly the same as last time; yes, capital S and I again. Colon, no the
colon is the one with two dots, not dot and comma. Dollar item again, then
hypen, greater-than, get id, with a capital I. Nope, no service bit this time.
Now, open bracket and two closing brackets (I assumed the final two on your
example were typos?!). now a semi-colon, yes the one with the comma.
That's pretty much how I could foresee me telling someone this on the phone,
but to be honest, I'd really prefer an email ;)
So it really involves mentioning each character. I was hoping that
there would be a shared language for constructs such as -> and the
There are, what you'd call, technical jargon for them.
However, it'd pretty obviously depend on the extent of knowledge of the
person on other side of phone line. If she understands PHP objects,
difference between OOP in PHP4 & PHP5, and ternary operator, things
would be fairly simple.
In any case, Ashley's nailed the foolproof technique for sure :)
