>PHP Documentation in the MySQL Manual
>MySQL can be used with a multitude of programming languages, but PHP is

>We regard this as another sign that MySQL has a strong commitment
>towards the PHP users in our community.
>Currently, the PHP docs cover:
>     * ext/mysql (the original set of PHP functions for accessing MySQL)
>     * ext/mysqli (the improved and recommended set of functions)
>     * PDO_MYSQL (the MySQL PDO driver for PHP's PDO interface)
>This will soon be amended by the newest set of functions:
>     * ext/mysqlnd
>Tony Bedford of the MySQL Docs team will be in charge of writing the new
>section on ext/mysqlnd. Currently, he's in the process of reworking the
>ext/mysqli section which still lacks a lot of function descriptions.
>When done with this, the MySQL-related parts of the PHP documentation
>will be in much better shape, so that's a true win-win situation for PHP
>and MySQL.
>Needless to say, Tony will keep maintaining the PHP docs, so they'll
>always be up to date, complete, and correct. Go MySQL! Go PHP! :-)
