I'm trying to make a 'one fits all' script which can be applied to various situations, by just changing a load of manditory variables to suite each situation.
I could of course have a simpler script with less variables for easy functions, and a more complicated script for more difficult situations. However, I would rather have one script I could apply to everthing with various if and else function.
I was wondering if having lots of 'manditory variables' would create any significant slowing of the script? Thereby making it more appropriate to have different scripts for different situations.
I don't think it would effect the laoding time by very much it all. You wouldn't notice it..
If the script is only for yourself then it's fine. But if there are a bunch of people get accessing to it, the problem will reveal.
Sorry 123 what do you mean???
The script will be widely used throughout my site, to fetch news headline links from other sites. What do you mean by reveal??
PS; If you know a bit about PHP could you have a quick look at my question below under string 'Simple PHP Question'
