$GLOBALS (super global) variable


$GLOBAL is a php super global variable which can be used instead of 'global' keyword to access variables from global scope, i.e. the variables which can be accessed from anywhere in a php script even within functions or methods.


Here is an example to testify the theory mentioned above:


    $s = 25;  
    $t = 50;  
    function subtraction()  
    $GLOBALS['v'] = $GLOBALS['t'] - $GLOBALS['s'];  
    echo $v;  

In the code above, since v is a variable present within $GLOBALS array, it is accessible form outside the function also.
