If so, when. > so, returning a string from your procedure to the publisher handler which then will use req.write to output it versus just using req.write yourself is a question of how clear you want your code to be. it does not really matter which method you use. this is similar to a question of whether your code can generate console output in just one single place or whether it can be done everywhere in the code. > > It's not so much that I have not found ways to do what I want to do, but > I'm uncomfortable with my style and technique. > hope this helps...
