I do not think so.  These are separate files and the interaction between the files is controlled by a collection of browser requests and server responses. Maybe the best thing is to isolate a test case that demonstrates your issue.  You can have JS, CSS, PHP, and HTML all in one file.

attach all the files rather than copy/paste

I am confused at what you are asking.
So you have a single index.php file in a folder that contains the style.css and scripts.js all wrapped into this file?
Or do you have a folder structure that needs to be copied as is to another location retaining .\folder structure?

Here is an example of a way to post the question.  Obviously it is a simplified example, but it shows how to create an isolated test case that includes all the moving parts in a single file.
<?php // RAY_temp_rgb192.php

$x = time();



<script type="text/JavaScript">
function popcorn()
    alert("<?php echo $x; ?>");

<style type="text/css">


<body onLoad="popcorn();">
