Subject RE: [! !] and [- -], maximums for $row and $col
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2005 17:23:10 GMT
Hi, Derrick -

I have modified my code such that the subroutines are in [- -] and the
module loads are in [! !], and that works very well. What you suggest
about the apache children does make sense and would explain the earlier
behavior. Tnx for your thoughts!

I experienced some weird behavior with [! !] before.  Here is my
theory: The [! !] blocks are executed once per apache child, which means
that if you change the files/routines then you need to restart  
the server to force all the children to re-read the files/routines.   
I was developing a page once and if you hit refresh multiple times you
could get completely different content depending on which apache child
served the request.  See if issuing a graceful restart solves the

Then again, I could be way off base here....
