Yes - but - we're talking about a user-app that the OP is trying to provide 89M records to. Sure - "some" users might have need of looking at even as much as a million records IF they were researching something that needed it. But - for the 'general' user of an app - I cannot see a need to be providing even that much data. Think about it - you give the user 1M records, how long is that user going to page thru the results? Let's say there are 20 results on a page and it takes a mere (wow!) 2 seconds to scan thru them looking for something apparently very obvious. That's 600 results viewed per minute at best. Six hundred into a M is 1666 minutes which is 27+ hours. Even at 1 second per page view time, it's still more time than in a normal work day. And you want come up with a way to feed him 89M?
The problem needs to be looked at differently - put together a business-smart solution to finding the needle in this haystack of 89M pieces of straw and only then apply technology to it. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
