Require nor Include works inner a class file.

This is the file where I define the class:
===== 1.php =====
<?
class test {
  include("2.php"); //the same with require
}
?>
=====  end  =====

And this is the file where I have content.
===== 2.php =====
<?
var $a=1;
function method1 () {
  $this->a++;
}
?>
=====  end  =====

This does not work.
The error is:
========
Parse error:  parse error, expecting `T_OLD_FUNCTION' or `T_FUNCTION' or `T_VAR' or `'}'' 
========

include is not allowed there, use the constructor instead
class {
	function class ()	{
		include('2.php'); //same with require
		}
	}

Well
"include is not allowed there" is not sufficient.

I have 200+ classes that have a common declaration of variables and methods.
Everytime I need  to modify this declarations I have to modify this 200+ files.

If I could use require or include there I had only one file to modify.

Indeed include or class must work inside a class so as to ease multiple definitions of the same variables or functions.  As in my case, all my classes have a save and a delete function which are identical.  include or require will make it easier for me to maintain my code (as what it should be)

Did you try to define base class with common variables and functions? For example

class Common {
  protected $strCommonVariable;
  protected function commonFunction() { ... }
}

class Specific extends Commmon {
 ...
}
