Depends who does the wishing :-) The first time I compiled PHP, I tried to throw in almost everything that sounded remotely interesting. That was incredibly time-consuming and frustrating. I didn't even really understand what half that crap was, and then I had to go download and install and configure it and kick the tires on each one, and... By the time I got so frustrated with it all, there was *ALREADY* a new version of PHP out. (It's not like I didn't have other stuff to do...) So when I started over with that version I only compiled in the stuff I *KNEW* I would have time to mess with in the next six months. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ------------------ It don't matter what you choose, but choose only the stuff you're gonna need FOR SURE in the next six months. ------------------ If it turns out you were wrong, it's no big deal to download/compile/install one more toy, after you've been playing awhile. Oh yeah -- Be sure to compile it as a CGI as well. You'll need that for cron jobs sooner than you think, and it's way easier when you still have the shell with the up arrow :-) Actually, I always put my configure line in a chmod 700 shell script so I can just use it again. I know PHP writes one out, but it's got all those quotes and stuff, and I like one I can just read. -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
