I have written script, which should include somefile.txt 
for example ten times:

for($i=0;$i<10;$i++)
    include "somefile.txt";

When I have ran this script, I have obtained 10 warnings,
stating that PHP can not include somefile.txt. After that,
PHP starts including somefile.txt in infinite loop.

I have tryed same code using alternate for syntax:

for($i=0;$i<10;$i++):
    include "somefile.txt";
endfor;

And everything worked well. Everything worked also if I 
rewrite this piece of code to use while loop.

include(), require(), eval() and basically any statement
that executes other code isn't considered as a single
statement, but as a statement list.  Therefore, they cannot
reside inside non-encapsulated loops.
