Because of the limitations of MS SQL Server and the inability to limit
result sets as you are in MySQL, I am having to finesse/brute force a method
to peruse through large result sets.

My question is this:  How exactly does the mssql_fetch_array() function
work?  Does it make a call to the db server for each fetch, or is the entire
result set returned from the db server and stored locally in memory and the
fetch call just pulls it from there?

I suppose it makes little difference in the final design, since I'll need to
have the functionality anyway, I was just curious about what kind of
overhead I'd be creating.
