    Well, let's start with an easy question: have you *tried* them?


// $row = /* Database row grabbed elsewhere in your code. */'';

if (is_array($row)) {
    foreach ($row as $r) {
        echo nl2br($row).PHP_EOL;
} else {
    echo nl2br($row).PHP_EOL;

    Error-handling and the remainder of checking is up to you.
