All existing mysql_* functions are deprecated and will be removed from php in version 7. This forces many users to migrate to mysqli or pdo:mysql. mysql-continued aims to be a drop in replacement for the existsing mysql-library. Simply include the php-file and keep on running without modifying and testing your existing code.


mysql-continued has these limitations:

  • it can not handle multiple database connections
  • it does not accept passing the $link_identifier resource into its functions (follows from first limitation)
  • it implements most but not all existing functions (see below)
  • it ignores the default ini-connect-values in mysql_connect();
  • mysql_connect ignores the $new_link and $client_flags parameters


The code creates a global variable '$mysc_obj' that could conflict with your existing code.
