The following describes the mandatory requirements that must be adhered
to for autoloader interoperability.
-## Mandatory:
* A fully-qualified namespace and class must have the following
- structure \<Vendor Name>\(<Namespace>\)*<Class Name>
+ structure `\<Vendor Name>\(<Namespace>\)*<Class Name>`
* Each namespace must have a top-level namespace ("Vendor Name").
* Each namespace can have as many sub-namespaces as it wishes.
-* Each namespace separator is converted to a DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR when
+* Each namespace separator is converted to a `DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR` when
loading from the file system.
* Each "\_" character in the CLASS NAME is converted to a
- DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR. The "\_" character has no special meaning in the
+ `DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR`. The "\_" character has no special meaning in the
* The fully-qualified namespace and class is suffixed with ".php" when
loading from the file system.
* Alphabetic characters in vendor names, namespaces, and class names may
be of any combination of lower case and upper case.
-## Examples:
-* \Doctrine\Common\IsolatedClassLoader => /path/to/project/lib/vendor/Doctrine/Common/IsolatedClassLoader.php
-* \Symfony\Core\Request => /path/to/project/lib/vendor/Symfony/Core/Request.php
-* \Zend\Acl => /path/to/project/lib/vendor/Zend/Acl.php
-* \Zend\Mail\Message => /path/to/project/lib/vendor/Zend/Mail/Message.php
+* `\Doctrine\Common\IsolatedClassLoader` => `/path/to/project/lib/vendor/Doctrine/Common/IsolatedClassLoader.php`
+* `\Symfony\Core\Request` => `/path/to/project/lib/vendor/Symfony/Core/Request.php`
+* `\Zend\Acl` => `/path/to/project/lib/vendor/Zend/Acl.php`
+* `\Zend\Mail\Message` => `/path/to/project/lib/vendor/Zend/Mail/Message.php`
-## Underscores in namespaces and class names:
-* \namespace\package\Class_Name => /path/to/project/lib/vendor/namespace/package/Class/Name.php
-* \namespace\package_name\Class_Name => /path/to/project/lib/vendor/namespace/package_name/Class/Name.php
+Underscores in Namespaces and Class Names
+* `\namespace\package\Class_Name` => `/path/to/project/lib/vendor/namespace/package/Class/Name.php`
+* `\namespace\package_name\Class_Name` => `/path/to/project/lib/vendor/namespace/package_name/Class/Name.php`
The standards we set here should be the lowest common denominator for
painless autoloader interoperability. You can test that you are
following these standards by utilizing this sample SplClassLoader
implementation which is able to load PHP 5.3 classes.
