Get command

Help, do not understand the get command.

include ("falvor.php");
$flavor = (get_flavor); {
echo "<p>Hal's favorite flavor is $get_flavor!</p>";

What's up man...

To call a function in php we simply use the function name followed by parenthesis. get_sflavor() accepts no parameter and returns a piece of text so we can just call it like below:

$flavor = get_flavor();
