I'm about to use my first #include file. I just haven't had much need to reuse the same code on several pages, but here's my question. Is it ok to created an object in the #include file, use it, and then destroy it if I'm going to use it again in the actual page? It seems like a waste of server cpu cycles to me. How should I create the database connection, use it in the #include then keep it open for the actual page? My only delima is that I will not have the database connection on every page that I will be including this file on, otherwise I would just open it in the #include and just close it at the end of the page.
