Re: [php-49] Is it bad practice to die 'inside' a class?

Why not use a header redirect?

function chekIP() {
??????? if ($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] != '[masked]') {
??????????????? header("aDifferentLoginPage.php");
??????????????? exit;
??????? }
}

Not sure if I can word this well, so please ask for clarification as needed...

Hypothetical example of the concept (that is, I'm not looking for a better way to do this particular task, just using it as a simplified example):

MainPage.php
?? <? php
?? include ('theClass.php');
?? $newUser = new theClass();
?? $newUser->checkIP;
?? echo "Welcome...";
?? ...
?? ?>

theClass.php
?? ...?????????????????? // setup-stuff
?? function chekIP() {
??????? if ($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] != '[masked]') {
??????????????? include ('aDifferentLoginPage.php');??????????? //? THIS LINE!!
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? die();
??????? }
??? }


Roughly, if the user is not at[masked], then they are bounced out to a different page BY THE CLASS!!

1) Is this a bad idea or is it okay practice?
2) does this lead to memory-leak or other wasted RAM/processing issues?
