Put this in yout local/config.php

Markup('php','<include','/\(\:php\:\)(.*?)\(\:phpend\:\)/sie', "php('$1')");
function php($cmd)
	$cmd = str_replace('\\"', '"', $cmd);
	$out = "";
	return $out;

Now you can execute simple PHP-Code in any pages.

$out = {$FullName} . "\n";
$arr = Array("a", "b", "c");
$cnt = 0;
foreach($arr as $line)
  $out .= "||$line||$cnt\n";
$out .= "FOO\\\\\n" . "BAR:" . (3*4);

That don't work with :


and a message error appears on the top :
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /var/www/vhosts/domain/httpdocs/local/markup.php(6) : eval()'d code on line 2
markup.php is include in config.php (whenever directly in config.php : the same error)

Nota 1 : column-left.php contains a simple table.

Nota 2 : the code dont appears in the source code

Nota 3 : Your example on the top is correctly work on the same pmwiki page
