Is it just me, or is the documentation for these two functions totally wrong?
They are sopposed to return int values, either a "result identifier", or 0,
if the query fails.
However, it looks to me like it always returns a string.  If the query
returns data (i.e. a SELECT query), then it returns something like
"Resource id #2".  If the query doesn't return anything (i.e. an INSERT or
whatever), or if it fails, it returns an empty string.
So, how does one tell the difference between a failed query and a query with
no results?


P.S. Which one is broken, the docs or the implementation, and are they going
to be fixed?
