    I'm looking at a function within a plugin and there is an & prior to the $.

    function function_name(&$classObj .... 
    What does the & do? Is there a link for more information? I've been googling ... :(

    Update: I couldn't figure out if this was a typo or had a purpose. I removed the & and the plugin appears to still be working.

    Thank you. Now I need to figure out if this was necessary.
