mysql_fetch_array, extracting variables
Posted 16 October 2006 - 05:10 PM
I've seen a function before that does this but forgot what it was. Right now whenever I use $data = mysql_fetch_array($query) i do the following after:
$name = $data["name"];
$email = $data["email"];
$phone = $data["phone"];
etc etc etc... isn't there a function that will do all of this for me?

If you use the function mysql_fetch_assoc() instead, you can then use the extract() function to do that. Why don't you just use the array references, which makes the code much more self-commenting.
I've always wondered how people came to use mysql_fetch_array() instead of mysql_fetch_assoc(), seems like everyone does it..

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community
