Okay, thank you for the quick info. How do other languages than C# call that? :-) My class is a debug helper class, that can write trace messages and so on. I have added a random per-request tag to distinguish concurrent requests in the trace file and thought that generating such a tag would perfectly fit in a static constructor. Now a helper function does that check and generates one on the first call of the method. -- Yves Goergen - nospam.l...@unclassified.de - http://unclassified.de -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
