$GLOBALS

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7)

$GLOBALSReferencia todas variáveis disponíveis no escopo global

Descrição

Um array associativo contendo referências para todas as variáveis que estão atualmente definidas no escopo global do script. O nome das variáveis são chaves do array.

Exemplos

Exemplo #1 Exemplo da $GLOBALS

<?php
function test() {
    
$foo "local variable";

    echo 
'$foo in global scope: ' $GLOBALS["foo"] . "\n";
    echo 
'$foo in current scope: ' $foo "\n";
}

$foo "Example content";
test();
?>

O exemplo acima irá imprimir algo similar à:

$foo in global scope: Example content
$foo in current scope: local variable

Notas

Nota:

Esta é uma 'superglobal', ou global automática, variável. Isto simplismente significa que ela está disponível em todos escopos pelo script. Não há necessidade de fazer global $variable; para acessá-la dentro de uma função ou método.

Nota: Disponibilidade da variável

Diferente de todas as outras superglobais, $GLOBALS tem essencialmente sempre estado disponível no PHP.

Watch out when you are trying to set $GLOBALS to the local variable.

Even without reference operator "&" your variable seems to be referenced to the $GLOBALS

You can test this behaviour using below code

<?php
/**
* Result:
* POST: B, Variable: C
* GLOBALS: C, Variable: C
*/

// Testing $_POST
$_POST['A'] = 'B';

$nonReferencedPostVar = $_POST;
$nonReferencedPostVar['A'] = 'C';

echo
'POST: '.$_POST['A'].', Variable: '.$nonReferencedPostVar['A']."\n\n";

// Testing Globals
$GLOBALS['A'] = 'B';

$nonReferencedGlobalsVar = $GLOBALS;
$nonReferencedGlobalsVar['A'] = 'C';

echo
'GLOBALS: '.$GLOBALS['A'].', Variable: '.$nonReferencedGlobalsVar['A']."\n\n";

As of PHP 5.4 $GLOBALS is now initialized just-in-time. This means there now is an advantage to not use the $GLOBALS variable as you can avoid the overhead of initializing it. How much of an advantage that is I'm not sure, but I've never liked $GLOBALS much anyways.

I finally found information about superglobals not being found in $GLOBALS:

[...]super-globals (aka. auto globals) are not added to symbol tables by default for performance reasons unless the parser sees need. i.e.

<?php
$_SERVER
;
print_r($GLOBALS);
?>

will list it. You can also control this using auto_gloals_jit in php.ini: http://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.auto-globals-jit

Warning
Please note that variable variables cannot be used with PHP's Superglobal arrays within functions or class methods. The variable $this is also a special variable that cannot be referenced dynamically.

I ran into the case where I needed to know if my script was in the global scope or not.

You can use $GLOBALS to figure out which case that is:

<?php // file foo.php

$some_unique_prefix_foo = "ok";
if (isset(
$GLOBALS["some_unique_prefix_foo"])) {
    echo
"Foo is in global scope.\n";
} else {
    echo
"Foo is NOT in global scope.\n";
}
unset(
$some_unique_prefix_foo);

// Inside another file.
function test() {
    include
"foo.php";
}
test();

?>

Outputs:

Foo is in global scope.
Foo is NOT in global scope.
