$result->close();
}

/* close connection */
$mysqli->close();
?>

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n", mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

if (
$result = mysqli_query($link, "SELECT * FROM City ORDER BY ID LIMIT 1")) {

    
/* determine number of fields in result set */
    
$field_cnt = mysqli_num_fields($result);

    
printf("Result set has %d fields.\n", $field_cnt);
