PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Working With Functions Displaying Only Four Shirts

Reason for using different approaches in showing the list of products in index and shirts pages.

In the shirts.php, Randy calls the get_list_html_view($product_id, $product) function and directly echoes out the html.

In index.php, He concatenates the output first and then shows the output. He presumably did this to finally show the last product first.

My question is, is there any performance improvement in the second process. I mean, does this process speeds up the program?

Thanks Placid
