ibase_queryExecute a query on an InterBase database


resource ibase_query ([ resource $link_identifier ], string $query [, int $bind_args ] )

Performs a query on an InterBase database.



An InterBase link identifier. If omitted, the last opened link is assumed.


An InterBase query.


Return Values

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.


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).


Version Description
5.3.1 On success the function now returns TRUE if there were no affected rows, where it previously returned 0 (a zero followed by an empty space).


Example #1 ibase_query() example



$dbh ibase_connect($host$username$password);
$stmt 'SELECT * FROM tblname';

$sth ibase_query($dbh$stmt) or die(ibase_errmsg());
