PHP Manual


(PHP 4 >= 4.2.0, PHP 5)

pg_send_query Sends asynchronous query


bool pg_send_query ( resource $connection , string $query )

pg_send_query() sends a query or queries asynchronously to the connection. Unlike pg_query(), it can send multiple queries at once to PostgreSQL and get the results one by one using pg_get_result().

Script execution is not blocked while the queries are executing. Use pg_connection_busy() to check if the connection is busy (i.e. the query is executing). Queries may be cancelled using pg_cancel_query().

Although the user can send multiple queries at once, multiple queries cannot be sent over a busy connection. If a query is sent while the connection is busy, it waits until the last query is finished and discards all its results.



PostgreSQL database connection resource.


The SQL statement or statements to be executed.

Data inside the query should be properly escaped.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Use pg_get_result() to determine the query result.


Example #1 pg_send_query() example

pg_connect("dbname=publisher") or die("Could not connect");

  if (!
pg_connection_busy($dbconn)) {
pg_send_query($dbconn"select * from authors; select count(*) from authors;");
$res1 pg_get_result($dbconn);
"First call to pg_get_result(): $res1\n";
$rows1 pg_num_rows($res1);
"$res1 has $rows1 records\n\n";
$res2 pg_get_result($dbconn);
"Second call to pg_get_result(): $res2\n";
$rows2 pg_num_rows($res2);
"$res2 has $rows2 records\n";

The above example will output:

First call to pg_get_result(): Resource id #3
Resource id #3 has 3 records

Second call to pg_get_result(): Resource id #4
Resource id #4 has 1 records
