This is a bit hard for me to explain but is there any way to have PHP 
store a persistent server-side constant. Something that will stay in RAM 
and is not dependent on client connection.

For example I have this code in file:

define ("HOME_PAGE", ";

But if I want access to the constant I need to include the file in every 
script that needs it.

I am hoping there is some way to say to the PHP engine, "this is a 
static constant that will never change, keep it RAM, and share it 
between invocations/children".

Is this feasible? Is it is I could then "cache" whole blocks of static 
HTML and that would speed up my scripts quite a bit ... AND my my life 
as a programmer easier since I wouldn't have to always have an 
"include("")" statement at the top of each of my scripts ...
