Passing values by Reference

Hi All,

Is it possible to pass values by Reference in Phalcon? This simple code does not work :

$x = 10;
echo $x;
&$x = 11;
echo $x; // should be 11 but does not work in phalcon


of course it works, phalcon is just the framework, but other than that you're using plain php. And the way you wrote it will return an error

function indexAction()
  $x = 10;
  echo $x; // 10

  echo $x; // 11 

public function passByReference(&$x) {
  $x = 11;
