Integrating Validation Errors - Reviewing PHP Basics 2/3 [RESOLVED]

The flavor.php include file contains a function named get_flavor. That function receives no arguments, and it returns a piece of text as its return value. Call that function and assign the return value to a variable named flavor.

I've tried this a lot of ways but I'm still not getting it?

<?php
include ('flavor.php');

function get_flavor() {
return get_flavor = $flavor;
};

echo "Randy's favorite flavor of ice cream is ____.";

?>

You don't need to create the function. The function already exists in the other include file. You just need to call the function here and load the return value into a variable.

Does that help?
