mysqli_info

Description

string mysql_info(resource link_identifier= =NULL);

Returns detailed information about the last query.

Parameters

link_identifier

The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect was called with no arguments. If no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level error is generated.

Return Values

Returns information about the statement on success, or FALSE on failure. See the example below for which statements provide information, and what the returned value may look like. Statements that are not listed will return FALSE.

Examples

Statements that return string values. The numbers are only for illustrating purpose; their values will correspond to the query.
