How to determine fetchrow_arrayref is empty in MySQL?

P: 170
hey guys,

need help on this code:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT * FROM `mml log` WHERE Commands LIKE '%$IMSI%'");
  2. $sth->execute();
  5. my $numFields = $sth->{'NUM_OF_FIELDS'};
  6. while (my $ref = $sth->fetchrow_arrayref){
  7.     print "--------------------------------------------------------------------------------";
  9.     for (my $i=0; $i<$numFields; $i++){
  10.            printf ("%s  %s", $i ? "," : "", $$ref[$i]);
  11. }
  12.     print "--------------------------------------------------------------------------------";
this is a code to fetch a row from MySQL
just would like to know...what those $i, ?, "," : "" within the bracket means?

also this will print if my database finds a record
if say it can't find a record, i want to print "Records not found"
but now do i determine if the row is empty, contains nothing
