Retrieves a list of table names from a MySQL database.
This function is deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue a SQL SHOW TABLES [FROM db_name] [LIKE 'pattern'] statement instead.
The name of the database
The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect() is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect() was called with no arguments. If by chance no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level warning is generated.
A result pointer resource on success, or FALSE on failure.
Example 1. mysql_list_tables() alternative example
Note: For downward compatibility, the following deprecated alias may be used: mysql_listtables()
