I'm fairly new to PHP and I've been learning about object-oriented programming. I came across two methods called constructors and destructors within PHP classes, and I'm a bit confused about their purpose.
I understand that constructors are methods that are automatically called when an object of a class is created. But why do we need them? What can we do with constructors that we can't achieve with regular methods?
Similarly, I've read about destructors being called when an object is no longer in use or is about to be destroyed. But what exactly is their purpose? Are they necessary for every class we create?
I would appreciate it if someone could shed some light on the role and significance of constructors and destructors in PHP classes. Any examples or practical use cases would be helpful too.
Thank you in advance!
