I've been handed a pile of code that includes a lot of
include statments (mixed between
require_once). Sometimes, the path has parenthesis around it, i.e.
require_once (JPATH_COMPONENT.DS.'controller.php');, and other times there isn't:
The php docs for include mention this, but aren't specific. Should I remove the parenthesis when I find them, or is it ok to leave them alone? When writing further require/include statements, are there specific cases where I should use them?
