The function defined() always return false within a function or class, although the value of the constant is still available.

the code :

<?php
define(NAME, "value");
function f() {
     if (defined(NOM)) echo "NOM is defined";
     echo NOM;
}
f();
?>

will print "value" only. Currently tested with EasyPHP running with a Windows XP computer.
