Parameters

database_name

The database name.

table_name

The table name.

link_identifier

A FrontBase link identifier returned by fbsql_connect() or fbsql_pconnect().

If optional and not specified, the function will try to find an open link to the FrontBase server and if no such link is found it will try to create one as if fbsql_connect() was called with no arguments

Return Values

Errors/Exceptions

A string describing the error will be placed in $phperrmsg, and unless the function was called as @fbsql() then this error string will also be printed out.

Examples

<?php
$link
= fbsql_connect('localhost', 'myname', 'secret');

$fields = fbsql_list_fields("database1", "table1", $link);
$columns = fbsql_num_fields($fields);

for (
$i = 0; $i < $columns; $i++) {
    echo
fbsql_field_name($fields, $i) . "\n";;
}
?>
