using the tutorial code as an example, is it possible to call a function from an include file on

* Defines the HomePage page type

class HomePage extends Page {
static $db = array(
static $has_one = array(


class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

function LatestNews() {


where FunctionLatestNews.php contains the following code:

$news = DataObject::get_one("ArticleHolder");
return ($news) ? DataObject::get("ArticlePage", "ParentID = $news->ID", "Date DESC", "", 5) : false;

just thinking where this code could be reused on other page controllers.
