ifx_pconnect -- Open persistent Informix connection


int ifx_pconnect ( [string database [, string userid [, string password]]] )

Returns: A positive Informix persistent link identifier on success, or FALSE on error

ifx_pconnect() acts very much like ifx_connect() with two major differences.

This function behaves exactly like ifx_connect() when PHP is not running as an Apache module. First, when connecting, the function would first try to find a (persistent) link that's already open with the same host, username and password. If one is found, an identifier for it will be returned instead of opening a new connection.

Second, the connection to the SQL server will not be closed when the execution of the script ends. Instead, the link will remain open for future use (ifx_close() will not close links established by ifx_pconnect()).

This type of links is therefore called 'persistent'.
