Loading Files and Classes Dynamically

The Zend_Loader class includes methods to help you load files dynamically.

Zend_Loader vs. require_once()

The Zend_Loader methods are best used if the filename you need to load is variable. For example, if it is based on a parameter from user input or method argument. If you are loading a file or a class whose name is constant, there is no benefit to using Zend_Loader over using traditional PHP functions such as require_once().
