Looking at the php3 manual on the "x_fetch_array" functions there seems to ba a big difference.
array mysql_fetch_array (int result [, int result_type])
array pg_fetch_array (int result, int row [, int result_type

In the pg_fetch_array you can specify which row you want to access and in the mysql_fetch_array you cannot and I guess are returned only the next one.
I'm using mysql and I really need to specify the row the fetch. Is there a way to do this in mysql with a different function or something? Or is there some inherently different way to do this in mysql land.

Yes I could write a function to give me only the row I wanted by spinning or fetching until I got to the one I want but that is a little slow.

Thanks for your help
