pg_fetch_array() returns an array that corresponds to the fetched row (record).
pg_fetch_array() is an extended version of pg_fetch_row(). In addition to storing the data in the numeric indices (field number) to the result array, it can also store the data using associative indices (field name). It stores both indicies by default.
Note: This function sets NULL fields to PHP NULL value.
pg_fetch_array() is NOT significantly slower than using pg_fetch_row(), and is significantly easier to use.
rowbecame optional in PHP 4.1.0.
result_typewas added in PHP 4.0.0.
Row number in result to fetch. Rows are numbered from 0 upwards. If omitted, next row is fetched.
An optional parameter that controls
how the returned array is indexed.
result_type is a constant and can take the
following values: PGSQL_ASSOC,
PGSQL_NUM and PGSQL_BOTH.
Using PGSQL_NUM, pg_fetch_array()
will return an array with numerical indices, using
PGSQL_ASSOC it will return only associative indices
while PGSQL_BOTH, the default, will return both
numerical and associative indices.
FALSE is returned if
row exceeds the number
of rows in the set, there are no more rows, or on any other error.
