In this final part of our series on external iterators (loops) in PHP, we will look at how to retrieve data using the ArrayIterator SPL class.
| || 04-06-11 || ||Alejandro Gervasio ||9753 |
Letís face it: building custom external iterators is one of those things that we, as PHP developers, have to tackle sooner or later. Whether it comes to iterating over database result sets or traversing plain array elements, external iterators are powerful, reusable structures that permit you to develop more efficient object-oriented applications. This is the third part in our series on external iterators in PHP.

If you, as a PHP developer, are looking for an approach that lets you build traversable classes that stick more strictly to the Single Responsibility Principle, then maybe it is time to consider the functionality provided by external iterators.
| || 03-21-11 || ||Alejandro Gervasio ||15387 |
In this first part of a short tutorial series, you will learn how to implement external iterators in PHP using OOP (Object Oriented Programming). This is useful when you want to construct easily traversable classes. Keep reading to learn more!
