ibase_query -- Execute a query on an InterBase database


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

Performs a query on an InterBase database. 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.

Example 1. ibase_query() example


    $host = 'localhost:/path/to/your.gdb';

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

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


Note: In PHP 5.0.0 and up, this function returns the number of rows affected by the query (if > 0 and applicable to the statement type). A query that succeeded, but did not affect any rows (eg. an UPDATE of a non-existent record) will return TRUE.

Note: 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).

See also ibase_errmsg(), ibase_fetch_row(), ibase_fetch_object(), and ibase_free_result().
