I know that this has been discussed before, but I cannot find the threads

I have a function that does a mysql_query and want to break if the SQL query
didn't return any rows in $result.

empty(), isset() will not work, for obvious reasons.

Can anyone suggest an alternative?

$sql="select row from table where field = \"1\"";
$link_id = mysql_connect($hostname, $username, $password);
mysql_select_db($database, $link_id);
$result = mysql_query ($sql, $link_id) or die;

//this doesn't work...right?
if (empty($result)) break;
