Hello jsWalter,

No, but then it's impossible for the echo statement to ever execute
without the function being called, so you always know the name of it

You can use get_defined_functions() and search the ["user"] section of
the array that comes back for a list of all public declared functions.

Best regards,
 Richard Davey
