PHP Class Constants:

Sometimes we need to have constant values  in our program which remains same through and through. We do not need to put a $ sign before the constant to use or to declare it.

<?php

class A

{

const newValue="Constant value does not consist $ sign";

function display()

{

echo self::newValue."\n";

$a=new A();

$a->display();

?>
