<form action="<?=$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];?>" method="post">
    <input type="button" name="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
 
// at top of the page put this:
 
<?php
// if the button is clicked
if(isset($_POST['submit']))
{
    // run your php function
    foo();
}
?>

There are 2 ways of doing this:
PHP + JavaScript:
Use PHP to print out JavaScript code that will redirect browser to another page, e.g. <script>window.location = 'http://your-new-url'</script> 
PHP + HTTP Headers:
Use PHP's header() function to send HTTP headers of a redirect, e.g. header('Location: http://your-new-url'). For this to work you would need to buffer the output, because header() function cannot be called after you started outputting from your PHP page.
Tell me which way you want to do it and I can give you a full example.

I actually thought that within PHP code you needed functionality to break the execution of the code and redirect to another page. Now that I read it again, it seems that you needed something else. A little mistake on my side.

If you want a PHP function that will print an HTML button that will call another page once clicked, then you can use this code for your jump() function:


<?php
 
function make_jump_button($url, $title)
{
  $url = htmlspecialchars($url, ENT_QUOTES);
  $title = htmlspecialchars($title, ENT_QUOTES);
  echo "<button style=\"cursor: pointer\" onclick=\"window.location='{$url}'\">{$title}</button>";
}
 
make_jump_button('http://www.example.com/', 'test link');
 
?>
