any function test works fine with it except for print()...
with this code:
the result is empty... i know that it is useless testing print()... but is it really the exact explanation behind why print() does not work with function_exists() (that it is useless)?
if it so, then why function_exists() works when function_exists itself is used as a parameter (see the first example)? well, function_exists is also useless because in the first place you cannot invoke it if it does not exist right?
i just couldn't see which is which...
1) when using function_exists as a parameter works fine is reasonable, then print should work fine too, because it is also a function. otherwise, this is a lack of codes within the function_exists().
2) on the other hand, when using print as a paramater doesn't work is reasonable, then function_exists shouldn't work too, because it is useless testing if a function exists when itself is used as a parameter. otherwise, this is a waste of codes within the function_exists().
- i am using PHP v5.2.3
- this is not a question of the usage of the function but the integrity of the function
