Subject: [PHP] Need help with auto_prepend_file

> Our website relies heavily on include files.  We have a single include file
> that is 'auto prepended' to every php file on the site using the
> auto_prepend_file directive in php.ini.  This include file does an
> include_once on other include files.  Also, most parts of our code include
> other page components such as our menu bar from other .inc files.
> Should we be using auto_prepend_file?  It seems like this does not do an
> include_once and when we turn error_reporting = E_ALL we are seeing a lot of
> errors on variables that have already been defined and such.
> Thanks in advance for any replies.

What you can do is check on some constant that you define the first
time the file is included. The auto prepended file will then look
something like:

--- Pseudo code ---

- if constant A is not defined
  --  define constant A
  --  your code

--- End of Pseudo code ---

This will make sure function, variables and/or constants will only
be defined once.
