Syntax:

array ReflectionExtension::getClassNames( void )

Parameters: This function does not accept any parameter.

Return Value: This function returns an array of class names from the specified extension.

Below programs illustrate the ReflectionExtension::getClassNames() function in PHP:

<?php
  
// Defining an extension
$A = 'DOM';

// specified extension
$extension = new ReflectionExtension($A);
  
// Calling the getClassNames() function
$B = $extension->getClassNames();
  
// Getting an array of class name
var_dump($B);
?>
