The following class definition lists three vars, yet they are all treated as one, as the call to report() shows.  I'd love to be able to define more vars in a class.

class bankaccount {

     var $balance;
     var $transactions;
     var $history;

     function bankaccount () {
          $this->$balance = 0.00;
          $this->$transactions = 0;
          $this->$history[$transactions] = $this->$balance;

     function report () {
          echo $this->$balance . "<br>";
          echo $this->$transactions . "<br>";
          echo $this->$history[$transactions] . "<br>";

     function credit ($amount) {
          $amount = abs($amount);
          $this->$balance += $amount;

     function debit ($amount) {
          $amount = abs($amount);
          $this->$balance -= $amount;


$USDaccount = new bankaccount;



the result is:

You should use $this->balance, not $this->$balance. The latter is equivalent to $this->'', where all your values are being stored.

If possible, you might consider raising the error_reporting level in your php.ini
