I am new to this. I have been trying to implement a hierarchial data
structure in Mysql 5.0, on Windows NT with PHP. Can anyone tell me if
I wish to retrieve an information such as the list of fore-fathers
from a family tree how do I go about it in MySQL. I think MySQL still
do not have support for Hierarchial Queries. ( like in Oracle we have
CONNECT BY PRIOR) .
Can I use functions to get a array of names or something like that. Or
is there any other owrk around for it.
