SplQueue inherits from SplDoublyLinkedList. So, objects of SplQueue support methods push() and pop(). But please be advised that if you use push() and pop() methods on a SplQueue object, it behaves like a stack rather than a queue.

For example:

$q = new SplQueue();
$q->push(1);
$q->push(2);
$q->push(3);
$q->pop();
print_r($q);

Above code returns:

SplQueue Object
(
    [flags:SplDoublyLinkedList:private] => 4
    [dllist:SplDoublyLinkedList:private] => Array
        (
            [0] => 1
            [1] => 2
        )
)

Note that 3 got popped and *not* 1.

So, please make sure that you use only enqueue() and dequeue() methods on a SplQueue object and *not* push() and pop().
