CFModule converted for PHP

I am looking for a PHP equivalent of the cfmodule function. In my example, I am passing variables as well.  Is there a good PHP equivalent to this?

<cfmodule name="request.displayTable"

Open in new window

Not the greatest workaround, but what I did was to include a base functions.php file in the php.ini file under (auto_prepend_file = "C:\PHP\CustomTags\functions.php"), which can include all of my existing functions.  Then call a function, passing the variables and getting the returned results.  

The only downside I see is that EVERY php page will call this and I am not sure if this will slow down PHP, since it may be loading in 1000 functions for every page, even though you may not be referencing them.

Since I don't really understand ColdFusion, this may be a little bit speculative, but I'll tell you what I think I am seeing here.  It looks like a data base query asking for something like this:

SELECT * FROM displayTable WHERE jobinfoid = '$np->id' AND jobarea = 'ALL' AND jobtype = 'summary'

In this query statement, $np is an object, and id is a property of the object.  There is no requirement for this to be the case; the variable might be any string or integer value.  I was just echoing what I think CF is talking about.
Does that sound like it's on the right track?

Nope.  CFModule is kind of like a big brother to the include file and/or functions.  It has a single depository location outside of the websites and allows multiple sites to call the same functions, without having to have duplicated code.

Gotcha.  Here is what I recommend.  Make a copy of this question, then delete it and repost it anew.  Some of the EE community will not look at questions when there is already a dialog in process, assuming that the question is getting handled.  In this case, it's not, and a fresh post will be likely to get more eyes on it.  Best regards, ~Ray

Works, but not very elegant.
