I don't think there's much of a benefit, really. I really don't like being dependent upon php.ini changes (although you can change the include_path with ini_set()). Generally, the way I program is to have a variable in an include file that determines the "include path", anyhow. So, if the program or these include files move, I still only have to change it in one place (well, one place in each program using the absolute path, I guess). This all comes down to a matter of preference. Since all of the scripts are on the same computer and you can change php.ini, the above method (yours) is probably the easiest to use. ---John Holmes... -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
