private $emp_id;
private $emp_name;
private $emp_sex;
private $emp_salary;

//method members
function setName($name){ //$name is the parameter
function getName(){
return $this->emp_name;


$emp=new Employee();//create object
$emp->setName("Dara Yuk");//supply value to the parameter
echo "Name:".$emp->getName();//display the name
