[thelist] PHP User Defined Functions

Does anyone know of a way to call a User Defined PHP function that is in file separate from the
current script WITHOUT doing an include on the file that contains the function.

Here is my dilemma.  I am borderline obsessive when it comes to organizing my code.  I have
written many php functions that I call from "all over" in my code.  When I write a function, say
"MyPhpFunction", I create a file called MyPhpFunction.php that contains ONLY the code for the
function "MyPhpFunction" and I store the file in a directory with all my other functions.  The
file naming convention prevents me from creating more than one function with the same name.

Therefore my code looks like:


Is there a way to call the function w/o the include?  

I really appreciate the responses that everyone posts.  I wish I could contribute more, but I only
have about 2 months of self taught experience to share.

Thanks a lot!

the MIVA web scripting language lets you call user defined functions in other files
allowing you to create a very organized system for your user defined functions:
<MvDO FILE="/functions/MyMivaFunction.mv" NAME="result" VALUE="{MyMivaFunction()}">
