ibase_execute

Execute a previously prepared query (PHP 4, PHP 5)
resource ibase_execute ( resource query [, mixed bind_arg [, mixed ...]] )

Execute a query prepared by ibase_prepare().

This is a lot more effective than using ibase_query() if you are repeating a same kind of query several times with only some parameters changing.

Parameters

query

An InterBase query prepared by ibase_prepare().

bind_arg
...

Return Values

If the query raises an error, returns FALSE. If it is successful and there is a (possibly empty) result set (such as with a SELECT query), returns a result identifier. If the query was successful and there were no results, returns TRUE.

Note:

In PHP 5.0.0 and up, this function returns the number of rows affected by the query (if > 0 and applicable to the statement type). A query that succeeded, but did not affect any rows (e.g. an UPDATE of a non-existent record) will return TRUE.

Examples

Example 682. ibase_execute() example

<?php

$dbh
= ibase_connect($host, $username, $password);

$updates = array(
   
1 => 'Eric',
   
5 => 'Filip',
   
7 => 'Larry'
);

$query = ibase_prepare($dbh, "UPDATE FOO SET BAR = ? WHERE BAZ = ?");

foreach (
$updates as $baz => $bar) {
   
ibase_execute($query, $bar, $baz);
}

?>
