ingres_error -- Gets a meaningful error message for the last error generated


string ingres_error ( [resource link] )

Returns a string containing the last error, or NULL if no error has occurred.

If a link resource is passed to ingres_error() it returns the last error recorded for the link. If no link is passed then ingres_error() returns the last error reported using the default link.

The function, ingres_error(), should always be called after executing any database query. Calling another function before ingres_error() is called will reset or change any error message from the last Ingres function call.

Example 1. ingres_error() example

ingres_connect($database, $user, $password);

ingres_query("select * from table");

$error_text = ingres_error();

if ( is_null($error_text) ) {
   echo "An error occured - " . $error_text;
