This package can be used to add and remove variables to a class dynamically at run-time.

The variables may be made read-only. Read-only variables may not be changed or removed.

Each variable may have associated custom setter and getter functions in order to implement special purpose behavior when the variable is changed or retrieved.

Under PHP 5, you can have classes with variables with restricted access using private and protected accessor clauses. However, these keywords do not provide read-only access to a variable.

This class implements read-only access control into class variables. It uses special getter and setter functions to overcome the original access control restrictions of PHP 5.
