No, it wouldn't.
PHP itself can't tell the difference between a bot and a browser. All it
knows is that has to stream data out to be sent over the network
connection by the webserver.
If all the parts of the script are sent to a browser then they'll also
be sent to the 'bot.
to. With PHP it's the *server* that parses the code and outputs the
results to the browser/bot.
A 32-bit extension to a 16-bit graphical interface, sitting on
an 8-bit operating system, originally written for a 4-bit processor
by a 2-bit company without ONE BIT of common sense.
