scope of the variable in PHP

I have been doing quite a bit of PHP but I never tried this and would like to know if this is possible.

Is there any way I can define the scope of the variable in PHP?

Lets say I have an if statement and I want the variable to leave only in the if statement and the value should not be outside of the if statement. Is this possible in PHP.

PHP doesn't have the range of scopes that C++ has. Generally speaking, you have global scope and function scope. An item at function scope may be declared static.

Yup that does not sound to me very good in PHP.
