Hi sNop,
I'm not sure what's the question since you're not a newbie...

PHP Project has a source folder to build. It is same as the project folder by default and it can be customized at Preferences > PHP > New Project Layout.
'Use as Source Folder' changes it on the fly.(this action adjusts inclusion/exclusion pattern also)

'Include' simply adds selected folder to build path.

'Exclude' simply removes selected folder from build path.

Include/Exclude are convenient actions for modifying build path(inclusion/exclusion pattern). See Configure Build Path(or Project Properties) > PHP Build Path.

This is a feature of DLTK and it had been introduced in pdt 2.0.

Best regards

i think sNop meant the 2 menu entries in the top-level right click menu: "Build Path" and "Include Path" and what the difference between these 2 paths is. this stackoverflow answer sums it up quite nicely.

I don't think this, Thosi wrote right answer.

Exactly what i want to know, thank you

The menu item 'Use as Source Folder' confused me, I absolutely understand how build path works.
