I have a flexible program, which can do many different things according to the
data it is fed. Ideally the flexibility is achieved by calling different

Ideally, from the point of program maintenance, each module should not be too

language, but in
an interpreted language like PHP the programmer must decide whether to lump a

functions in memory on any given pass, whereas the second case may require lots

Are there likely to be significant performance costs for either approach, and
your feelings about the relative virtues of the two approaches?
Use a bytecode cache and stop worrying.
