What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



mysql_fetch_assoc — Fetches a row of data from a result handle and returns it as an associative array.


array mysql_fetch_assoc(result handle);
mysql result result handle: Result handle returned by mysql_db_query() or mysql_query()


Associative array containing one row of query data; FALSE when out of data or on error


mysql_fetch_assoc() retrieves a row of data from a result handle returned by mysql_db_query() or mysql_query() . After the data is retrieved, the result handle's internal pointer is advanced one position. The data is returned as an associative array that uses the column names as the array keys. If column names are duplicated, the data in the last column in the query sharing the name overwrites the other values. To access data from these types of queries, either use mysql_fetch_row() or alias the column names in your query.


Despite the added functionality, mysql_fetch_assoc() is not significantly slower than mysql_fetch_row() ; in fact, mysql_fetch_array() , mysql_fetch_assoc() , mysql_fetch_object() , and mysql_fetch_row() all share a common underlying function in the PHP source code.

Example 803. Display all rows of data from a query handle

// Included code that connects to a MySQL server and sets a default database
// See the MySQL Functions chapter introduction for the source code for the file
include ('');

// Make a simple SELECT query
$query = "SELECT * FROM user ORDER BY login";
$mysql_result = @ mysql_query ($query)
    or die ("Query '$query' failed with error message: \"" . mysql_error () . '"');

// Ensure that our query returned some data
$num_rows = mysql_num_rows ($mysql_result)
    or die ("Try a different query - this one did not return any rows.");

// Now display all the data from the query
for ($count = 0; $row = mysql_fetch_assoc ($mysql_result); $count++)
    echo "\n\nRow #$count\n";
    print_r ($row);
