It is a PHP object operator. PHP has two object operators.

The first, ->, is used when you want to call a method on an instance or
access an instance property.

The second, ::, is used when you want to call a static method, access a
static variable, or call a parent class's version of a method within a child

I am novice web programmer.  Some years ago I developed an application which
I am going to update to PHP5 soon.  I was trying to catch up on developments
and I came upon the idea the mysqli is now the way to go.  However, I have
found that " -> " is used a lot and I think this was used in mysql too.
Here is a code snippet I got off the web.  Can anyone tell me what -> means
- I can't find it anywhere.   



while($row = mysqli_fetch_object($result)){


  echo $row->column;
