PHP Include and Require (Absolute and Relative Links)

How does the include (include_once) and require (require_once) functions work?

Everytime I step away from PHP, I seem to forget how the include and require work with respect to absolute and relative links.

PHP includes the "include/require files" first 
then the paths within the include/require are located relative the new location.
