(PHP 3 >= 3.0.6, PHP 4, PHP 5)
ibase_query -- Execute a query on an InterBase database
( [resource link_identifier, string query [, int bind_args]] )
Performs a query on an InterBase database. If the query raises an error,
returns FALSE. If it is successful and there is a (possibly empty)
result set (such as with a SELECT query), returns a result identifier. If
the query was successful and there were no results, returns TRUE.
Example 1. ibase_query() example
$host = 'localhost:/path/to/your.gdb';
$dbh = ibase_connect($host, $username, $password);
$stmt = 'SELECT * FROM tblname';
$sth = ibase_query($dbh, $stmt) or die(ibase_errmsg());
In PHP 5.0.0 and up, this function will return the number of rows affected by
the query for INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE statements. In order to retain backward
compatibility, it will return TRUE for these statements if the query succeeded
without affecting any rows.
If you get some error like "arithmetic exception, numeric overflow,
or string truncation. Cannot transliterate character between character
sets" (this occurs when you try use some character with accents)
when using this and after ibase_query() you must
set the character set (i.e. ISO8859_1 or your current character set).
