I am trying to figure out a part of the PHP code which belongs to one of
the files that is responsible for operating a discussion group.
I was examining some of a part of the code which produces the total number
of messages and displays the subject of the message.
I encountered a part that looks like this:
or die("Couldnot select database");
$sql = "select max(thread) as thread, max(mesgid) as mesgid from
$result = mysql_query($sql)
or die("Query failed");
$numrows = mysql_num_rows($result);
$result_row = mysql_fetch_row($result);
echo"<center><b>No of topics: $result_row<br>
No of total messages: $result_row</b>
What I don't understand is how did $result_row become $result_row and
Also what does it mean to select max(thread) as thread, max(mesid) as
I have never used this "as" command before.
Thanks for any insight.
