Step 3 - Include file more than once

PHP include file

Sometimes it can happen that you want to include a file in your script more than once. There is no problem with it. You can do this by calling include more times. Altough in such case maybe a well organized loop can be better.

So to demonstarte more include calls I have created the following example code:

Code: internal.php
  1. <?php
  2. echo "-->internal.php<--<br/>";
  3. ?>

And the main file is:
  1. <?php
  2. include ('internal.php');
  3. echo "Multiple include test.<br/>";
  4. include ('internal.php');
  5. echo "Now include it again.<br/>";
  6. include ('internal.php');
  7. echo "And again.<br/>";
  8. include ('internal.php');
  9. ?>
This code will result the following output:
-->internal.php<-- Multiple include test. -->internal.php<-- Now include it again. -->internal.php<-- And again. -->internal.php<--
