Yes, in PHP they're refered to as include (.inc or whatever extension you wish to give them) files. Basically, you code your functions to a file and then use the include function *include()* to include it into your script. Very simple. Also, check out the *objects* section of your book or find a few tutorials on the web. If you like the idea of calling sub-routines from your script you'll love Objects.
