Whereas I have been studying PHP 5 on-line.

And I have begun reading a book on PHP 7.

I gather that PHP 4.3.10 has limited object-oriented support. And that 
it has security issues!

So say chapter 7 "Building Classes", may not be much use to me! I have 
installed PHP 7.2 on my PC. Then I expect many errors once I install a 
PHP file on iiNet's server.
