Many times we use the LIMIT option in MySQL to limit the number of records returned for a given
query. A feature most web developers commonly use is pagination. When showing the little numbers
pointing back and forth to previous and next pages, we need to both know how many records are in
total and at the same time we need to show only one page of results.
Many developers simply run the query twice. Once without the LIMIT to see how many records answer
the query and a second time to actually get the limited data needed to show.
Another approach to this is to use SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS. This methos is faster than running the same
query twice. Lets look at a simple query :
//Use $Result to show the data
$Result=mysqli_query($link,"SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS FirstName,LastName From UserBase LIMIT 10");
// The number of rows that actually returned for the query (Can be less than the limit)
//This is the number of results that would have been returned if the query did not have LIMIT 10 at
//the end. You can now use this number to calculate the number of pages in your pagination.
This code example will also work on PHP4, just use mysql_ instead of mysqli_.
From the MySQL Manual :
In the absence of the SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS option in the most recent SELECT statement, FOUND_ROWS()
returns the number of rows in the result set returned by that statement.
The row count available through FOUND_ROWS() is transient and not intended to be available past the
statement following the SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS statement. If you need to refer to the value later, save it.
