fp_load_degree

5.x misc.inc fp_load_degree($degree_id = "", DatabaseHandler $db = NULL, $bool_load_minimal = false, $array_significant_courses = false, $bool_use_draft = false)

This function provides a pass-thru to $d = new DegreePlan(args). However, it allows for quick caching look-up, so it should be used when possible instead of $x = new DegreePlan.
