I have a question regarding the scope of the "DEFINE" variable in PHP. I have been using it in my project, but I'm not sure about its scope and how it behaves in different parts of my code.
To provide some context, I'm fairly new to PHP and I've been working on a web application where I frequently use constants for configuration settings. I have noticed that the "DEFINE" function allows me to define a constant, but I want to be sure about its scope and limitations.
Can anyone clarify how the "DEFINE" variable works in terms of its scope within a PHP script? For example, if I define a constant using "DEFINE" inside a function, can it be accessed outside of that function? What about global scope? And are there any limitations or things to be aware of when using "DEFINE" within class methods?
I appreciate any insights, explanations, or examples that can help me better understand the scope behavior of the "DEFINE" variable in PHP.
Thank you in advance!
