How to load return array from a PHP file?

I have a PHP file a configuration file coming from a Yii message translation file which contains this:

<?php
return array(
'key' => 'value'
'key2' => 'value'
);
?>


I want to load this array from another file and store it in a variable

I tried to do this but it doesn't work

function fetchArray($in)
{
include("$in");
}


$in
is the filename of the PHP file

Any thoughts how to do this?

Answer

When an included file returns something, you may simply assign it to a variable

$myArray = include $in;

See http://php.net/manual/en/function.include.php#example-162
