It's like the
include function but safer. Maybe...
Basically it won't fail if the class doesn't exist.
To use this simply pass a class to the function and it will get included if it exists:
Or you can pass an array:
$classes = [ 'profile::docker', 'profile::mysql', 'profile::typo4', ] safe_include($classes)
Good question. Maybe you are consuming a free text field from an API and don't want the entire catalog compilation to fail if someone made a typo. Maybe you are refactoring roles from one naming convention to another and you want the classification to keep working even if the name changes.
