> A: BACKGROUND(from php.net)
> int phpinfo ( [int what])
> Outputs a large amount of information about the current state of PHP. This
> includes information about PHP compilation options and extensions, the PHP
> version, server information and environment (if compiled as a module), the
> PHP environment, OS version information, paths, master and local values of
> configuration options, HTTP headers, and the PHP License.
>
> Because every system is setup differently, phpinfo() is commonly used to
> check configuration settings and for available predefined variables on a
> given system. Also, phpinfo() is a valuable debugging tool as it contains
> all EGPCS (Environment, GET, POST, Cookie, Server) data.
> The output may be customized by passing one or more of the following
> constants bitwise values summed together in the optional what parameter.
> One can also combine the respective constants or bitwise values together
> with the or operator.
>
> B: DESCRIPTION
