This function returns TRUE if the interface given by interface_name has been defined, FALSE otherwise.

Example 1. interface_exists() example

// Check the interface exists before trying to use it
if (interface_exists('MyInterface')) {
    class
MyClass implements MyInterface
    
{
        
// Methods
