I'm currently developing an application in PHP where I store data in a MYSQL database. I made a database class which allows connection and other several operations such as query,etc.

Is there a way that I can keep a connection variable such that it is globally available across all functions such that I don't have to pass the connection variable to each and every function I call? an example is shown bellow.

I have a class db.

So I can say:
$connection = &new db("username","password","dbhost","dbname");

then for every function I call say display, I will have to say:


So I've been doing this for every function I call.
