I hope you're all doing well. I've been learning PHP recently and came across this concept called "generators." I'm a bit confused about what exactly they are and what their purpose is.
I have a basic understanding of PHP and know that it's a server-side scripting language used for web development. But when it comes to generators, I'm drawing a blank. I've heard they are a way to create iterators, but I'm not entirely clear on what that means.
Could someone please explain to me what generators are in PHP? What is their purpose? How are they used in practical scenarios? And if possible, could you provide some examples to help me grasp the concept better?
Any insights or explanations would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much in advance!
