This is not true to my mind.
define ("INC_DIR",$foo);
this "Constant" is not predefined by the developer, BUT it is
a constant-value for the rest of the script. To my mind such
"constants" make sense, because
- they are global
- they can't change their value while execution
- it doesn't matter if the constant-value is set dynamically when defining
So I would be glad to see this feature in PHP5.
