Richard,

yes! at least my example works. i didn't test it any further; i doubt it is intended that way.

Simon,
        So without extending foo you can run bar in another class?

Subject: [PHP] context when calling non static method of class in a static
way

hi,

lets assume the following classes:

class Foo{

public function bar()
        {
        echo get_class($this);
        }

}

class Foobar{

public function callBarStatic()
        {
        Foo::bar();
        }

}

the following code results in the output "Foobar":

$obj = new Foobar();
$obj->callBarStatic();

That means that the static call of bar() is executed in the context of
Foobar. Is this behavior deliberate? If so, it would open a great way of
object composition patterns. But only if it will be retained in future
versions :) (i've tested with 5.3.5)
