You want to get the return value of a file.
You have a PHP file that returns the value and want to execute the file and capture the return value.
<?php // file1.php - returns an array return array( 'key1' => 'value1', 'key2' => 'value2', ); ?> // Fetching the array of the file above $value = File::getRequire('file1.php');
If the file isn't found an exception is returned.
Illuminate\Filesystem\FileNotFoundException exception is returned if the file is missing.
It's a good idea to wrap this in a try/catch block unless you are certain the file exists.
