ingres_fetch_array -- Fetch a row of result into an array


array ingres_fetch_array ( [int result_type [, resource link]])


This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.

ingres_fetch_array() Returns an array that corresponds to the fetched row, or FALSE if there are no more rows.

This function is an extended version of ingres_fetch_row(). In addition to storing the data in the numeric indices of the result array, it also stores the data in associative indices, using the field names as keys.

If two or more columns of the result have the same field names, the last column will take precedence. To access the other column(s) of the same name, you must use the numeric index of the column or make an alias for the column.


("select t1.f1 as foo t2.f1 as bar from t1, t2");
$result = ingres_fetch_array();
$foo = $result["foo"];
$bar = $result["bar"];


result_type can be INGRES_NUM for enumerated array, INGRES_ASSOC for associative array, or INGRES_BOTH (default).

Speed-wise, the function is identical to ingres_fetch_object(), and almost as quick as ingres_fetch_row() (the difference is insignificant).

Example 1. ingres_fetch_array() example

($database, $user, $password);

ingres_query("select * from table");
while (
$row = ingres_fetch_array()) {
$row["user_id"];  // using associative array
echo $row["fullname"];
$row[1];          // using enumerated array
echo $row[2];
