Statically I presume?


Depending on you're version of PHP depends on how you get it in there though. The end result is always an include/require call against you're other class file, but in 5.3.x+ you can chain it against the spl_autoload method to import using the use keyword.

require_once '/path/to/MyOtherClass.class.php';
// Or, using spl_autoload if registered directly, include the autoload file and call:
use /path/to/MyOtherClass AS MyOtherClass; // Where MyOtherClass is in namespace /path/to

class MyClass
public function __construct()

Now if you mean that this is an Object method, then you'll need to either pass an instance of an object, create a singleton object for instantiation, or globalize you're object (not recommended).
