FWIW, this looked like it might be a right royal PITA for me ATM. However, I've got a work-around. With about a dozen scripts written using 'heredoc', I discover the need to include extra information for which I required a constant. The answer for me was to initialize a variable to have the same value as the constant and to use that in the heredoc string. e.g: define ('KONST', 100); $konst = KONST; echo <<<END Some sample text in which we need $konst END; A similar approach is to declare a 'pseudo-constant' variable instead of defining the constant (e.g. $konst=100 instead of the first two lines of code in the above sample).
