1 book.module _book_toc_recurse($tree, $indent, &$toc, $exclude, $depth_limit)

Recursively processes and formats menu items for book_toc().

This helper function recursively modifies the table of contents array for each item in the menu tree, ignoring items in the exclude array or at a depth greater than the limit. Truncates titles over thirty characters and appends an indentation string incremented by depth.


$tree: The data structure of the book's menu tree. Includes hidden links.

$indent: A string appended to each menu item title. Increments by '--' per depth level.

$toc: Reference to the table of contents array. This is modified in place, so the function does not have a return value.

$exclude: (optional) An array of menu link ID values. Any link whose menu link ID is in this array will be excluded (along with its children). Defaults to an empty array.

$depth_limit: Any link deeper than this value will be excluded (along with its children).
