if it's included with include_once, it shouldn'r make a big difference - on an average linux box loading a 21k file into memory should take no more than 0.5 msec, plus source parsing. >Normally, it should, but i heared that PHP stores the parsed result of >scripts in memory since the first run for next usage, is that true? and if >not, does parsing 21 KB very time, really affects the speed? This depends on the code - if you have a lot of comment, then it's usually faster ;-) Honestly - you need to profile this to get a real answer. If you have a "library" with a bunch of functions it would be better to include only a subset of functions when you need them. -- >O Ernest E.
