PHP 5.4.35 Released

sybase_fetch_array

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

sybase_fetch_arrayFetch row as array

Description

array sybase_fetch_array ( resource $result )

sybase_fetch_array() is an extended version of sybase_fetch_row(). In addition to storing the data in the numeric indices of the result array, it also stores the data in associative indices, using the field names as keys.

An important thing to note is that using sybase_fetch_array() is NOT significantly slower than using sybase_fetch_row(), while it provides a significant added value.

Parameters

result

Return Values

Returns an array that corresponds to the fetched row, or FALSE if there are no more rows.

Note:

When selecting fields with identical names (for instance, in a join), the associative indices will have a sequential number prepended. See the example for details.

Examples

Example #1 Identical fieldnames

<?php

$dbh 
sybase_connect('SYBASE''''');
$q sybase_query('SELECT * FROM p, a WHERE p.person_id= a.person_id');
var_dump(sybase_fetch_array($q));
sybase_close($dbh);
?>

The above example would produce the following output (assuming the two tables only have each one column called "person_id"):

array(4) {
  [0]=>
  int(1)
  ["person_id"]=>
  int(1)
  [1]=>
  int(1)
  ["person_id1"]=>
  int(1)
}

For varchar type fields, sybase api fetch is limited with 255 characters.
In sybase you can have a varchar field nearly upto a page size, ex: varchar(1500)
