1 theme.inc template_preprocess(&$variables, $hook)

Adds a default set of variables for variable preprocessors and templates.

This function is called for theme hooks implemented as templates only, not for theme hooks implemented as functions. This preprocess function is the first in the sequence of preprocessing functions that is called when preparing variables for a template. See theme() for more details about the full sequence.
