This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Where is this cute but otherwise missing function "PHP_Execute" to be found?

My version of FileMaker does not contain a PHP_Execute function, and it does not seem to be extant here on Brian Dunning's site as a CF.

Looks more like a function you would use in iwp/cwp ? Is this meant to work in FileMaker itself?

Presumably this runs off of the SmartPill PHP plugin.

As the developer stated in the description this custom function requires the SmartPill PHP plugin from Scodigo. Once the plugin is installed the function PHP_Execute will be available.

I could see this used for setting a user preference for where PDFs or data exports would be sent. So it can be used inside FileMaker itself. If it were cwp you wouldn't need a custom function.
