Hi. If I have an abstract class of Task and I want all subclasses of Task to have a private method _runTask, is there a way to enforce this?
Currently an abstract private function in an abstract class isn't allowed. Fatal error: Abstract function Task::_runTask() cannot be declared private in D:\PHP\Includes\Task.php on line 91 Now I'm pretty sure there are valid reasons for this, but, for me, the key part here is the "abstract" modifier. This should be read first and foremost and simply say that somewhere in the subclasses, this method must defined. And if it must be defined as private, then so be it.
