mysql_data_seek -- Move internal result pointer


int mysql_data_seek (int result_identifier, int row_number)

Returns: true on success, false on failure.

mysql_data_seek() moves the internal row pointer of the MySQL result associated with the specified result identifier to point to the specified row number. The next call to mysql_fetch_row() would return that row.

Row_number starts at 0.
