View Full Version : Confused about $info or $query

Sorry if this is just a stupid stupid question, i notice on SQl Queries sometimes people use $info sometimes they use $query, is there a reason for this or is it pure preference?

Preference. I use this way:

$query = "query";
$result = mysql_query($query);
$row = fetch_array($result);

I can't stand this


But If I have a function and I am returning say "user_info" Then in my function i have the query info then I put the array into that variable like so.

function get_user_info() {
$query = "Select *";
$result = mysql_query($query);
$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);

return $row;

$user_info = get_user_info();
