function include_module

6.x include_module($module, $bool_call_init = TRUE, $use_module_path = "")
7.x include_module($module, $bool_call_init = TRUE, $use_module_path = "")
4.x include_module($module, $bool_call_init = TRUE, $use_module_path = "")
5.x include_module($module, $bool_call_init = TRUE, $use_module_path = "")

This will find and include the module in question, calling it's hook_init() function if it has one.

Will return TRUE or FALSE for success or failure to include the module.

If the use_module_path is set to some value, we will not attempt to use the setting for this module's path. Useful if we do not have the module in our modules table yet.

Example use: include_module("course_search");


string $module:
