Description

mysql_fetch_row(resource $result): array

Returns a numerical array that corresponds to the fetched row and moves the internal data pointer ahead.

Parameters

result

The result resource that is being evaluated. This result comes from a call to mysql_query().

Return Values

Returns an numerical array of strings that corresponds to the fetched row, or false if there are no more rows.

mysql_fetch_row() fetches one row of data from the result associated with the specified result identifier. The row is returned as an array. Each result column is stored in an array offset, starting at offset 0.

Examples

Example #1 Fetching one row with mysql_fetch_row()

<?php
$result 
mysql_query("SELECT id,email FROM people WHERE id = '42'");
if (!
$result) {
    echo 
'Could not run query: ' mysql_error();
    exit;
}
$row mysql_fetch_row($result);

echo 
$row[0]; // 42
echo $row[1]; // the email value
?>

to print an array, simply use print_r(array name)

like this:
    $myrow = mysql_fetch_row($result);
echo "<pre>";
print_r($myrow);
echo "</pre>";

this will output the array in a readable form, with the index, too. Don't forget the 'pre' tags or the output will be on a single line.

Maybe worth pointing out that all the fields returned by this (and other?) calls are returned with type string. This had me puzzled for quite some time.

sry :) note now fixed:

<?php
$esi
=mysql_list_tables($db);$ris=mysql_fetch_row($esi);
//example: $db has >= 1 tabs
echo var_dump($ris);
//echoes only array(1). solution:
while($ris=mysql_fetch_row($esi)) echo $ris[0];
/*debug:
$ris=array("1st_tab"); ... $ris=array("n_tab");$ris=false;*/
while ($ris[]=mysql_fetch_row($esi));
//debug:$ris=array(array("1st_tab"), ... array("n_tab"));
echo $ris[n][0];//echo:"n_tab"
echo $ris[0][n];//echo:array | null
?>

hope it helps
