Found 'em, Thanks!

Gee Wiz the Internet is great!


int mysql_db_query(string database, string query, int [link_identifier] );

mysql_db_query() selects a database and executes a query on it. If the
optional link identifier isn't specified, the function will try to find
an open link to the MySQL server and if no such link is found it'll try to
create one as if mysql_connect() was called with no arguments
