Examples

Example #1 Updating a record in the database

<?php

// open in read-write mode
$db dbase_open('/tmp/test.dbf'2);

if (
$db) {
  
// gets the old row
  
$row dbase_get_record_with_names($db1);
  
  
// remove the 'deleted' entry
  
unset($row['deleted']);
  
  
// Update the date field with the current timestamp
  
$row['date'] = date('Ymd');
  
  
// convert the row to an indexed array
  
$row array_values($row);

  
// Replace the record
  
dbase_replace_record($db$row1);
  
dbase_close($db);
}

?>

Notes

Note:

Boolean fields result in an integer element value (0 or 1) when retrieved via dbase_get_record() or dbase_get_record_with_names(). If they are written back, this results in the value becoming 0, so care has to be taken to properly adjust the values.
