sybase_connect

Opens a Sybase server connection (PHP 4, PHP 5)
resource sybase_connect ( [string servername [, string username [, string password [, string charset [, string appname]]]]] )

sybase_connect() establishes a connection to a Sybase server.

In case a second call is made to sybase_connect() with the same arguments, no new link will be established, but instead, the link identifier of the already opened link will be returned.

The link to the server will be closed as soon as the execution of the script ends, unless it's closed earlier by explicitly calling sybase_close().

Parameters

servername

The servername argument has to be a valid servername that is defined in the 'interfaces' file.

username

Sybase user name

password

Password associated with username.

charset

Specifies the charset for the connection

appname

Return Values

Returns a positive Sybase link identifier on success, or FALSE on failure.

ChangeLog

VersionDescription
4.0.2 The charset parameter was added.
