Question PHP, {}, and ";" after them


Hello. In C++ (AFAIK) after "if {...}" you also should add ";". But after this statement in PHP you don't have to (might look like negligence, which is so like PHP). But what is a better practice in PHP?

Code:
if (true)
{
  echo 'True';
};

echo 'END';
Is this coding style better than

Code:
if (true)
{
  echo 'True';
}

echo 'END';
?

I'd go with whatever's valid syntax, being as it looks clear enough without the ;. In fact, I tend to comment something like } // end if describe condition in many languages.

If you don't like this PHP syntax quirk, you might hate Python

No, you don't have to do this and I've never seen anyone do this. You do have to add ";" after the closing brace of a declaration (eg struct or enum): "struct { ... };".

You mean OOP?

Here's C++ example:
Code:
#ifndef __ADDRBAR_H
#define __ADDRBAR_H

#ifdef CONFIG_ADDRESSBAR

#include "yinputline.h"

class AddressBar: public YInputLine {
public:
    AddressBar(YWindow *parent = 0);
    virtual ~AddressBar();

    virtual bool handleKey(const XKeyEvent &key);

    void showNow();
    void hideNow();
};

#endif

#endif

Not specifically, but a semicolon is required after a class declaration as well.
