If you have have a large number of functions, it might be better to separate them into a few files that you can include as needed. I use one file that contains functions needed by every page. I have a few other files that contain functions that aren't needed by every page, so, I include them only on pages that need them. But most functions go in the main include file used on every page.
Separating them will also minimize some overhead if you have a lot of functions. Otherwise, if your include files aren't War & Peace in length, one include file is fine. >>>> [EMAIL PROTECTED] 07/16/02 04:59PM >>> > Hello everyone, I'm a newbie and have a question on style that I've not > seen addressed anywhere.
