It depends on what you're trying to do. If the stuff's going to end up in a database anyway, or if you really want to provide a robust transaction environment that can survive disconnections and long delays, this is useful. If you're just doing an "add a comment to a guestbook" script, then it's almost certainly not worth the effort. miguel -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
