in a thread off-list i commented on the use of a function. here's what i said: yes, it's just like that. i could wrap a function around the logic. and sometimes i use that trick. the downside to that is access to globals. for many of my scripts there's a common pattern: 1 get set up. 2 process inputs, checking and preparing data for use 3 and 4 or aborting to an error handler at the end of this section (which is what the breaks all jump to) if there's a problem with the input. 3 do some work 4 prepare an output page in this scheme, it's convenient if 2, 3 and 4 all have access to the same namespace, so i don't usually use the function approach. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
