A VERY simple PostgreSQL function interface in PHP
Here's a no frills interface for PostgreSQL functions. At the moment it only works for functions that accept integer(s) and return a single integer. At least that's all I've tested it with.
It does no error checking at all. I hope to expand on it at some point to make it a bit more flexible and robust.
//Override method calls
function __call($function, $arguments)
$arguments = implode(',', $arguments);
$query = 'select ' . $function .
'(' . $arguments . ');';
$result = pg_query($query);
$ret = pg_fetch_array($result);
Assuming you're already connected to the database, usage would be something like:
$sp = new SP();
getAgeFromId() is a PostgreSQL function written in PLPgSQL.
It's only really a proof of concept to demonstrate an idea I was discussing with a colleague. I'll expand it and actually do something with it when I bother to learn PLPgSQL properly :-PFirst posted: Wed, 21 Jan 2009 22:08:52 +0000
