I've seen this "return a row" mechanism. But that allows me to define IN parameters and to capture OUT params, but does nothing for INOUTs (as far as I can tell). I'm in the process of de-coupling the code from SQL in PHP to use prepared statements with stored procedures. A large number of the SPs return 2 or 3 values and so OUT params was ideal. I want to use PDO. There is no php_myslqi extension, just php_mysql. I don't think I can use multi_query AND prepared statements. I don't want to be going back a decade in development and having to manually prepare SQL statements and escape/test parameters when there is a nearly perfect mechanism already available. I think moving from OUT and INOUT to a normal result set would be the fastest way to move forward. Thanks.
