List tables in a MySQL database


mysql_list_tables

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_list_tablesList tables in a MySQL database

Description

resource mysql_list_tables ( string $database [, resource $link_identifier = NULL ] )

Retrieves a list of table names from a MySQL database.

This function is deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue an SQL SHOW TABLES [FROM db_name] [LIKE 'pattern'] statement instead.

Parameters

database

The name of the database

link_identifier

The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect() is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect() was called with no arguments. If no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level error is generated.

Return Values

A result pointer resource on success or FALSE on failure.

Use the mysql_tablename() function to traverse this result pointer, or any function for result tables, such as mysql_fetch_array().

Changelog

Version Description
4.3.7 This function became deprecated.

Examples

Example #1 mysql_list_tables() alternative example

<?php
$dbname 
'mysql_dbname';

if (!
mysql_connect('mysql_host''mysql_user''mysql_password')) {
    echo 
'Could not connect to mysql';
    exit;
}

$sql "SHOW TABLES FROM $dbname";
$result mysql_query($sql);

if (!
$result) {
    echo 
"DB Error, could not list tables\n";
    echo 
'MySQL Error: ' mysql_error();
    exit;
}

while (
$row mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
    echo 
"Table: {$row[0]}\n";
}

mysql_free_result($result);
?>
