Post your question to a community of 470,833 developers. It's quick & easy.

Looking for the most EFFICIENT way to do the following...

I have a table that has links in it.

Columns: id, item, link_name, url.

I want to run through the recordset of this table and so something like
the following.... (Obviously, the following didn't work. I'd like to be
able to do something like this, avoiding having to make several seperate
database calls.)

[begin code]

$sql = "SELECT * FROM table ORDER BY item";
$res = pg_query($db,$sql);

//Echo out all links with an item of 1...

while(list($id,$item,$link_name,$url) = pg_fetch_row($res) && $item == 1) {
printf("<a href=\"%s\">%s</a><br>",$url,$link_name);

//Echo out other junk

echo $someStuff1;

//Echo out all links with an item of 2...

while(list($id,$item,$link_name,$url) = pg_fetch_row($res) && $item == 2) {
printf("<a href=\"%s\">%s</a><br>",$url,$link_name);

//Echo out other junk

echo $someStuff2;

//Et cetera

while(list($id,$item,$link_name,$url) = pg_fetch_row($res) && $item == 3) {
printf("<a href=\"%s\">%s</a><br>",$url,$link_name);

echo $someStuff3;

while(list($id,$item,$link_name,$url) = pg_fetch_row($res) && $item == 4) {
printf("<a href=\"%s\">%s</a><br>",$url,$link_name);

echo $someStuff4;

[end code]
Any ideas?
