    External Javascript files parsed by PHP?

    Anyone know if external JavaScript files are parsed by PHP, and thus can have PHP variables passed to them through echo()?

    No... but you can save them with a .php extension and change the Content Type to JavaScript:

    PHP Code:
    header"Content-type: Text/JavaScript" ); 
    Then all JavaScript and PHP in the file can be parsed as normal

    Hope this helps!

    It does..but: do I include it as a PHP include or the normal way I'd include a .js file?

    Include it Javascript-style:
    Code:
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="generatedJSfile.php">
    </script>
