Note to users: language constructs (eval, die, exit, isset, unset, echo etc.) which might be confused with functions, cannot be renamed or redefined even with runkit.internal_override.

Here is another example with a parameter:

<?php

function hello_world($word) {
  echo
"Original Hello World: $word\n</br>";
}

$helloWorld = 'echo "Redefined Hello World: $word\n</br>";';

hello_world('test1');

runkit_function_redefine('hello_world', '$word', $helloWorld);

hello_world('test2');

?>
