(no version information, might be only in CVS)PDOStatement::closeCursor -- Closes the cursor, enabling the statement to be executed again.
PDOStatement::closeCursor() frees up the connection to the server so that other SQL statements may be issued, but leaves the statement in a state that enables it to be executed again.
This method is useful for database drivers that do not support executing a PDOStatement object when a previously executed PDOStatement object still has unfetched rows. If your database driver suffers from this limitation, the problem may manifest itself in an out-of-sequence error.
PDOStatement::closeCursor() is implemented either as an optional driver specific method (allowing for maximum efficiency), or as the generic PDO fallback if no driver specific function is installed. The PDO generic fallback is semantically the same as writing the following code in your PHP script:
Esempio 1. A PDOStatement::closeCursor() example
In the following example, the $stmt PDOStatement object returns multiple rows but the application fetches only the first row, leaving the PDOStatement object in a state of having unfetched rows. To ensure that the application will work with all database drivers, the author inserts a call to PDOStatement::closeCursor() on $stmt before executing the $otherStmt PDOStatement object.
