I'm used to statically-typed languages. Normally I never would have passed a large structure like that on the stack. But then again, in those languages, large structures are usually passed by reference, by default. In C, the only way to pass a string or array by value is to wrap it in a struct, and in Java, objects are passed by reference (if I recall correctly). Guess that's something to get used to. - BW -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
