Old style constructor
Reports old-style constructor declarations (
ClassName()) and suggests replacing them with new-style constructors (
Prior to PHP 8.0, old-style constructor syntax used in the classes in the global namespace is treated as deprecated and will result in an
E_DEPRECATED error. If both a
__construct() and a
ClassName() method are defined,
__construct() will be called.
In namespaced classes, or any classes as of PHP 8.0, a
ClassName() method never has any special meaning and will never be called as a constructor. As a result, the inspection does not report such cases if the PHP language level is set to 8.0 or later.
See Constructors and destructors (php.net) for details.
