insert/update functions for mysql, what do you think?

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

I am working on two really simple functions that automatically generate (and execute) insert and update mysql queries and I have some questions:

Can there be any problems later on if functions treat numeric and string values the same? The function reports error if some value is neither numeric nor string (checked by using is_numeric and is_string functions), otherwise it just uses mysql_real_escape_string on all values in array and adds '' everywhere. Unlike microsoft access, mysql doesn't seem to care if you put '' on numeric value.

The simplest usage of insert function (for form data entry) would be:

db_insert('users', 'name,e_mail,bio', $_REQUEST);

First argument is table, another is the list of fields (separated by comma) , and third is the associative array of data that you want to insert.

Can you notice any problems?
