This is done using the global keyword. Here is an example
<?php $data = "Nothing to declare"; function nothing() { echo @"I have $data"; } function todeclare() { global $data; echo "I have $data"; } nothing(); echo "<br />"; todeclare(); ?>

This will print on the first line:
'I have'

and then on the next line

'I have Nothing to declare'

This illustrates that the global keyword is needed to allow the function to access its value from outside the function.

Say I have sent a command to a process using the fwrite command something like

while (true) {
 switch (expect_expectl($stream, $cases)) {
 case "ls":
 fwrite($stream, "ls -aln");

Is there a way I can save the output from that process to a variable ?

I'm writing my first php extension and I need to list included files (in PHP script) from RINIT function, but I cannot figure out how.

I deep into PHP source code and I think it's related to EG(included_files), but I can't to access the list.

 char *pt_var_sapi_name =;
 char *pt_var_file_handle_path = SG(request_info).path_translated;

 // HOW CAN I USE EG(included_files) to get included files list?

 return SUCCESS;
