I have written a new proposal in the series of improvements to mysqli
extension. This one aims to add a new method mysqli_result::fetch_column as
well as its functional counterpart.
The RFC is very simple, but I am looking for your opinions. I also have
doubts about the scope. Is the scope too limited? Should it involve a
change to fetch_all as well?
On the implementation part, I wonder if it could be optimized. The one I
have written works but doesn't look like the most efficient way to do this.
I am bumping this thread. I assume that it got lost a little bit with was
going on over the past week.
I have implemented changes to fetch_all by adding two new constants and
another optional parameter. This is only MVP. Both changes can be seen
Is this something that people would want to see implemented in mysqli?
Should the RFC be amended to include fetch_all() as well?
