Sara Golemon's Blog:
create_function() is not your friend
May 21, 2007 @ 09:31:00

In response to this previous post from Felix Geisendorfer, Sara Golemon shares a few thoughts on why she thinks it's just the other way around - create_function is not your friend.

In the short post she lists just a few of the issues surrounding the use of the function including that it:

  • is prone to critical abuse by user-supplied code
  • skips opcode cache optimizations
  • encourages not using comments (evil)
  • 100% blind to reflection or PHPDoc style documentation generation
