The functions created by create_functions are named, not anonymous. The value returned by create_function is the name of the newly created function. This name begins with a nullbyte, but it is a global name anyhow. $foo = create_function(...); $foo(); works because $foo here is a symbolic reference. create_function uses eval and has many caveats. From PHP's source:

sprintf(eval_code, "function " LAMBDA_TEMP_FUNCNAME "(%s){%s}", Z_STRV +AL_PP(z_function_args), Z_STRVAL_PP(z_function_code));
The function has a name, and is thus not anonymous. PHP's documentation is outright false.

Your dispatch table may work for you. But it is very inefficient and very ugly. You'd even be better off with a bunch of explicitly named functions and simple symbolic references. Back to square one of the programming mine field...

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
