Global variables refer to any variable that is defined outside of the function. Global variables can be accessed from any part of the script i.e. inside and outside of the function. So, a global variable can be declared just like other variable but it must be declared outside of function definition.
$variable_name = data;
Below programs illustrate how to declare global variable.
Accessing global variable inside function: The ways to access the global variable inside functions are:
- Using global keyword
- Using array GLOBALS[var_name]: It stores all global variables in an array called $GLOBALS[var_name]. Var_name is the name of the variable. This array is also accessible from within functions and can be used to perform operations on global variables directly.
