These functions allow you to access mSQL database servers. More information about mSQL can be found at http://www.hughes.com.au/.
In order to have these functions available, you must compile PHP with
msql support by using the
--with-msql[=DIR] option. DIR is the mSQL
base install directory, defaults to /usr/local/msql3.
Note to Win32 Users: In order for this extension to work, there are DLL files that must be available to the Windows system PATH. See the FAQ titled "How do I add my PHP directory to the PATH on Windows" for information on how to do this. Although copying DLL files from the PHP folder into the Windows system directory also works (because the system directory is by default in the systems PATH), it is not recommended. This extension requires the following files to be in the PATH: msql.dll
The behaviour of these functions is affected by settings in php.ini.
Table 1. mSQL configuration options
Here's a short explanation of the configuration directives.
There are two resource types used in the mSQL module. The first one is the link identifier for a database connection, the second a resource which holds the result of a query.
The constants below are defined by this extension, and will only be available when the extension has either been compiled into PHP or dynamically loaded at runtime.
This simple example shows how to connect, execute a query, print resulting rows and disconnect from a mSQL database.
