RTM again.

The link parameter is completely optional.

If you don't specify it, it uses the last connection created.

I can do this and it's perfectly valid:

$link = mysql_connect($server, $user, $pass);
if (!$link) {
  die ("Unable to connect to the database server");

$db_selected = mysql_select_db($databasename);
if (!$db_selected) {
  die("Unable to connect to the database $databasename");

$result = mysql_query("select 1");
