Whats the different between = and => and -> in php?

Im getting confused :(

1 Answer

The = operator is for assigning a value.

The => operator is for associating a key to a value in an associative array.

And the -> operator is for accessing a field/method from a instance. (At least I think so)

Correct me if I'm wrong, because I'm not an expert in PHP.
