Is it possible to make a user defined function return a result set? How?
$rs = mysql_query("SELECT udf_students(2011);");
The above query will return all students who enrolled in 2011.
I know how to write user defined functions in mysql.
But cannot return a list of data into a result set that can be assigned to PHP resource variable.
This would help me hide a lot of business logic inside the database itself.
And save a big time.
