Yes, this is acceptable. Normally, include and require go at the top of the page out of convention. However, there is no requirement that they be there. Just be careful. it's an accepted convention because it's a good idea. Make sure you know what you are doing when you break with the tradition.

I usually just put the <?include?> whereever I need it on the page. Actually have it embedded in an IF statement, so that if the conditions are not met, the script is not run and there is no need to pull in the script. It works fine.... Is placing the include at the top absolutely required, good programming convention or just preferred? thanks, Tami Team GotFusion -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
