hi,

currently smarty uses
Code:
include($compiled_filename)

to load a previously compiled filename.

This way, caching using Zend Optimizer or similar products does not work very well.

My proposal:
Why doesn't smarty compile files which can be loaded using
Code:
require_once($compiled_file);

The compiled files just would have to define a function, i.e.
Code:
function template_3324878334() { // 3324878334 is a unique id for the template
[... compiled template code ...]
}

and could be called using eval(). This would significantly improve smarty's performance, especially if you use the same template more than once on the same page.

Regards,

Fascinating and instructive.

Questions:

1) how does this affect scoping (ie. changing to a functionalized format)
2) how much is the cost of turning everything into functions (as opposed to direct executable code) which much then be called?

i think ZendOptimizer is just a toy regarding optimization. it is more designed to run encoded php-code than to speed things up.

i prefer php-accelerator ( http://www.php-accelerator.co.uk/ ) it speeds up the inlucde() of the templates (and even the include of Smarty.class.php Smile

For a working PHP accelerator for windows, you might want to try Turck MMCache which I've had success with running on a Win2K box.
