Using the class_exists Function

The class_exists() function is used to determine whether or not a class is defined in the script. It returns a boolean value of either TRUE or FALSE. demo.php <?php include_once("cart.php"); if(class_exists("cart")){ $shopping_cart = new cart(); echo $shopping_cart->store; } else { echo '"cart" class does not exist'; } ?> cart.php <?php class cart { public $store = "Spacely Sprockets"; public $items = array(); } ?>
