<?php

class myclass {
   
// constructor
   
function myclass()
   {
       return(
true);
   }

   
// method 1
   
function myfunc1()
   {
       return(
true);
   }

   
// method 2
   
function myfunc2()
   {
       return(
true);
   }
}

$class_methods = get_class_methods('myclass');
// or
$class_methods = get_class_methods(new myclass());

foreach (
$class_methods as $method_name) {
   echo
"$method_name\n";
}

?>
