dbase_get_record_with_names

(PHP 5 < 5.3.0, dbase 5, dbase 7)

dbase_get_record_with_names Gets a record from a database as an associative array

Description

array dbase_get_record_with_names ( resource $dbase_identifier , int $record_number )

Gets a record from a dBase database as an associative array.

Parameters

dbase_identifier

The database link identifier, returned by dbase_open() or dbase_create().

record_number

The index of the record between 1 and dbase_numrecords($dbase_identifier).

Return Values

An associative array with the record. This will also include a key named deleted which is set to 1 if the record has been marked for deletion (see dbase_delete_record()). Therefore it is not possible to retrieve the value of a field named deleted with this function.

Each field is converted to the appropriate PHP type, except:

  • Dates are left as strings.
  • DateTime values are converted to strings.
  • Integers outside the range PHP_INT_MIN..PHP_INT_MAX are returned as strings.
  • Before dbase 7.0.0, booleans (L) were converted to 1 or 0.

On error, dbase_get_record_with_names() will return FALSE.

Changelog

Version Description
dbase 7.0.0 dbase_identifier is now a resource instead of an int.

Examples

if (
$db) {

  for (
$i 1$i <= $record_numbers$i++) {
      
$row dbase_get_record_with_names($db$i);
      if (
$row['ismember'] == 1) {
          echo 
"Member #$i: " trim($row['name']) . "\n";
      }
