function_exists()

We can check built in function or user defined functions before using them. The built in function function_exists checks this and returns true of false. It takes one string input and returns Boolean output. Here is an example.
if(function_exists(is_int)){
echo " Yes this funtion is available to use ";
}else{
echo " Sorry , this is not available to use " ;
}
In the above code we have used is_int() which is a built in function in PHP, so we will get the output as this.
Yes this funtion is available to use

User defined functions

<?Php
function my_function($var1,$var2,$var3){
$var=$var1+$var2+$var3;
return $var;
}
echo my_function(5,6,8); // Output 19 

if(function_exists(is_int)){
echo " <br>Yes <i>my_function</i> is available to use ";
}else{
echo " <br>Sorry , <i>my_function</i> is not available to use " ;
}
?>
Output
19
Yes my_function is available to use

Example of uses

To check mysqli support, function_exists() is used.
if (function_exists('mysqli_connect')) {
  echo "mysqli is installed";
}else{
echo " Enable Mysqli support in your PHP installation "; 
}
