Handling MYSQL Result Sets in PHP

Recommended Posts

This question is more of a design question and am not sure what forum this would go in but here goes.

Is there a way or practice to search, navigate large result sets efficient in PHP?  My problem is that when I conduct a search I then want to search within those results using filters.  As of now, I keep researching the database when I enable filters.

Should I simply

1)re-search the database with my new filter criteria or,
2)is there a way to search the original result set
3)maybe something cool that I dont even know about.

Thanks.  Love the site!

personally i would re-query the database, but that's just me.  especially if you are talking about filtering through a large set of search results.  it's certainly possible to use some php functions and conditions to do it with php though.
