I use mysql_fetch array to retrieve large text data many many times
without a problem. I've actually written functions to retrieve the data for me using 
this
function, and I never had a single problem, truncated or speed, on Unix,
Linux or Windows platform.

Check out the code for the functions getrow(), getrows(), they use
mysql_fetch array.

This is the explanations of the functions:

You can use those as you please if you want
