I'm currently working on a PHP project and I've come across the concept of late static binding in PHP classes. I have a decent understanding of static binding, but I'm not sure how to handle late static binding in my code.
From what I have gathered, late static binding allows me to reference the called class in a static context, instead of the class that it is actually defined in. This seems quite powerful and I can see how it can be useful in certain scenarios, but I'm not sure how to correctly implement it in my code.
Could anyone give me a clear explanation of what late static binding is and maybe provide an example or two of how to use it effectively in PHP classes?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
