To be honest you'd be far better off doing this manually, rather than using someone

A handy utility function is var_dump(). This will echo out the contents of any
variable type. So to display the contents of your $results_array variable you would
That'll show you the contents of the array and what its structure looks like.
Displaying it in a controlled form is just a matter of finding out the structure of
the array and looping through it using one of php's many many loop constructs / array
Have a read about arrays on www.php.net - they are very useful once you get the hang
