Hey all, I was reading an article at PHPBuilder.com (not very recent, 01/15/2001) about PEAR DB, and was wondering if anyone had any experience using PEAR rather than the functions dedicated specifically to each type of DB (i.e. mysql_, mssql_, pg_, msql_, etc.). Also, if anyone has any reasons why to go with one or the other.
The reason I ask, is because I recently downloaded QuerySim so I could simulate my db info while the db is still in development and not have to slow down the process. QuerySim uses PEAR DB functions, and after the db development is finished it is an easy conversion. Simply change the line that tells which db is being accessed. [code snippet] $db = DB::connect( "mssql://$dbuser:$dbpass@$dbhost/$dbname" ); // for MSSQL $db = DB::connect( "mysql://$dbuser:$dbpass@$dbhost/$dbname" ); // for MySQL //instead of $conn = DB::connect('querysim'); [/code snippet] And my querys would still remain relatively the same. I hope you can shed some light on this because I am not really sure which one to use. -- Joshua E Minnie Advantage Computer Services, LLC Senior Project Manager [EMAIL PROTECTED] Phone: 269.276.9690 Fax: 269.342.8750 "Don't work for recognition, but always do work worthy of recognition." -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
