  2. For implementing multiple inheritance we can do something like this :

    works in php5+:
    class addition
    static function add($a, $b)
    echo $a . ‘ + ‘ . $b . ‘ = ‘ . ($a+$b);
    echo ”;

    class subtraction
    static function subtract($a, $b)
    echo $a . ‘ – ‘ . $b . ‘ = ‘ . ($a-$b);
    echo ”;

    class simpleMath
    private $_parents = array();
    function __construct()
    $this->_parents[] = ‘addition’;
    $this->_parents[] = ‘subtraction’;
    function __call($method, $args)
    foreach ($this->_parents as $class)
    if (method_exists($class, $method)) {
    return call_user_func_array(array($class,$method),$args);

    $math = new simpleMath;

    $math->subtract(10, 4);
    $math->add(5, 2);
