in several places - even on this list it has been and the php documents, the
pconnect has been accused of memory leakage or system crashes under heavy
user number use.

I'lll try to find it again. Anyway - I know that ODBC drivers do not use
have persistent connections but they connect/disconnect very quickly and
even when using heavy-weight classes e.g. recordset objects, they appear to
perform faster over new pages

Any reason for saying that? All my pages scan the security
tables before going on, and that connection remains open and
is re-used each time - as far as I can tell. I just treat it
the same as having a connection open on the hard coded
modules - it only gets closed when the module stops -
perhaps in several months time ( I'm running 24/7
applications )
