Setting the following option in a .htaccess file appends the given file to any php file except it is terminated by exit:

php_value   auto_append_file   append.php

However although the manual states that this is just like a simple include() this is not true.
An included file can see the global variables from the script it is included from. Using the auto_append_file option does not allow the appended script to see the global variables.

Using a normal include() works of course so there is not a problem with the visibility of variables in included files in general.

Reproduce code:
  $a="This should work!";
  $GLOBALS["b"]="This should also work!";
  echo "Script apage.php will finish now.<br>";

  echo "And I say: ".$a."<br>";
  echo "And also: ".$GLOBALS["b"]."<br>";

Expected result:
Script apage.php will finish now.<br>
And I say: This should work!<br>
And also: This should also work!<br>

Actual result:
Script apage.php will finish now.<br>
And I say: <br>
And also: <br>
