PDO user question

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I finally delved into learning how I was going to replace my MYSQL calls with a different interface. Had to go with PDO since my hoster doesn't support MYSQLI for my plan.

I've had some success with querying using pdo and prepared statements as well. One thing that I'm curious about is

How does one handle the need to get the number of rows returned by a Select? The documentation is very clear that PDO doesn't return that value for a Select statement (depending upon driver?) and there were a couple of solutions that made no sense to me. There was even one that did a completely separate query just to get the row count which makes even less sense.

Will PDO ever come up with an accurate row count function?
Does someone have a tried and true snippet they can share?
