I need to parse a PHP script with eval() and I want it to echo content that is outside of <?php tags.

My code gives an error because it does not know what to do with stuff outside of PHP tags. How can I echo stuff that is NOT inside PHP tags so this does not break?
<?php
 
$code = '
	<h1>PHP Info</h1>
	<?php
	phpinfo();
	?>
	Done!
	';
 
eval($code);
 
?>

	<h1>PHP Info</h1>
	'.
	phpinfo();
	.'
	Done!
	';
 
eval($code);
 
?>

Hello,

In the above I removed the first "<?php".
 
Use the code exactly what it is

This could also be the case:
Use you orginal code and then

eval(?>$code<?);
