Hi Stef,

Are you using require_once()?

Subject: [thelist] Force same PHP include several times on a page

Hi there,

it seems PHP5 is handling a file include differently than PHP4. I just
migrated, and in one of my apps, I have an include for a specific PHP file
(which loads a couple of complex SQL query builds) several times on the same
page. I guess it's not very efficient; instead it would be wiser to build a
function instead. But.... don't want to touch the code for the moment.

Now, with PHP4, it loads the include only once. But ignores the other

Anything I can do about?

Thanks for any hints!
