The DBX link object returned by dbx_connect()
The compared column
flags parameter is used to control the amount of
information that is returned. It may be any combination of the following
constants with the bitwise OR operator (|). The DBX_COLNAMES_* flags
override the dbx.colnames_case setting from php.ini.
It is always set, that is, the returned object has a data property which is a 2 dimensional array indexed numerically. For example, in the expression data 2 stands for the row (or record) number and 3 stands for the column (or field) number. The first row and column are indexed at 0.
If DBX_RESULT_ASSOC is also specified, the returning object contains the information related to DBX_RESULT_INFO too, even if it was not specified.
It provides info about columns, such as field names and field types.
It effects that the field values can be accessed with the respective column names used as keys to the returned object's data property.
Associated results are actually references to the numerically indexed data, so modifying data causes that data['field_name_for_first_column'] is modified as well.
This flag will not create the data property, and the rows property will initially be 0. Use this flag for large datasets, and use dbx_fetch_row() to retrieve the results row by row.
The dbx_fetch_row() function will return rows that are conformant to the flags set with this query. Incidentally, it will also update the rows each time it is called.
