PHP $GLOBALS (super global) variable

PHP $GLOBALS (super global) variable

Secondary Nav


$GLOBAL is a php super global variable which can be used instead of 'global' keyword to access variables from global scope, i.e. the variables which can be accessed from anywhere in a php script even within functions or methods.

Here is an example to testify the theory mentioned above:  

$s = 25;
$t = 50;
function subtraction()
$GLOBALS['v'] = $GLOBALS['t'] - $GLOBALS['s'];
echo $v;

In the code above, since v is a variable present within $GLOBALS array, it is accessible form outside the function also.
