1. Searching for the 'include'-function in the english offline documentation
in the index file:///c%7C/.../php_manual_en/index.functions.html: it's not present.

2. Searching in the online documentation (costing telephone ticks): it's present under 
'control structures': with
valuable information on how to use the include function.

3. Searching in the offline documentation under 'control structures': I get a
completely worthless page with differences for the include function between PHP3
and 4, not about how to use the include function.

We need good offline documentation! When will the online and offline 
documentation be the same so we can download it???

online and offline versions are generated from
the same xml source and at the same time, 
so you should not see any difference in the 
content (although the design may be different)

where do you download from?
mybe there's an old file hidden somewhere
we are not aware of?

As you can see include is not a function. It is a control structre. Why do you consider it an error to be not
included in the function index, as you found it in the
control structures section, and not under "Function
reference", where the functions are documented?

Also what method do you used for searching in the
offline and online versions? What format you use
of our various offline format possibilities?
