javascript - class / function in function

Hello all.

I am not sure what the benefit will be to this besides keeping is all together..?
My goal is to create a class for functions I wrote.
The functions all work together for one purpose so I would like them packaged if possible.
The only classes I know are in php so this seems a bit different to me.

I would have thought this would work.?
function myClass()
	var a = "HELLO";
	function init()
		alert("MSG: "+ this.a);


Can someone please give me a tip and maybe wirte a simple example?

Thank you,

I can't exactly remember where I saw it, but nested functions in PHP, in short, DON'T! If I remember correctly, it has something to do with PHP being a script language, as opposed to a compiled language.

Thank you both for the reply.

jlinkels - Yes thanks, I know not do that in php, but I did not see alternative in javascript.

grizly - I skimmed through it before. I will give it a good read.

Now I see am going down the wrong path. Nesting functions I see is not the answer. It works with separate functions (non nested) and I will leave it at that for now.
