Using a Cursor to Get All of the Documents

In order to get all the documents in the collection, we will use MongoCollection::find(). The find() method returns a MongoCursor object which allows us to iterate over the set of documents that matched our query. So to query all of the documents and print them out:

<?php
$connection 
= new MongoClient();
$collection $connection->database->collectionName;

$cursor $collection->find();
foreach ( 
$cursor as $id => $value )
{
    echo 
"$id: ";
    
var_dump$value );
}
?>
and that should print all 101 documents in the collection. $id is the _id field of a document (cast to a string) and $value is the document itself.
