Change requires to require_once
|Reported by:||pp3345||Owned by:|
Wordpress partially uses "require" to include files. I'd prefer to have require_once everywhere where a file really shouldn't be included twice. I'm currently developing an HTTP-Server (https://github.com/pp3345/Pancake) with a function to keep "static" codefiles (for example files that only do class-definitions and don't actually really execute any code) in some kind of a cache so that they don't need to be loaded again on every single request in order to improve performance. When I now, for example, load the wp-includes/class-wp-walker.php into the cache at the beginning and then Wordpress tries to require the file again, it fails with an Fatal Error due to trying to define the class again. Using require_once instead of require in Wordpress can be done quickly and would easily fix this. Also, it could improve the codes quality a bit.
