This is NOT a bug, but I couldn't find a place to request a feature.
I am creating a php page that have database related functions.  It's a database abstraction function. Thus I would call my custom made functions for any php database function.  Thus, I can change from a MySQL database to Oracle, without changing any php code in my files.  all i have to do is to set one variable to which database i want to use.  i would like php to create an abstacted php database function.....instead of having so many php functions for each database, just have one and then set a variable to what database to use....yes, i could use ODBC, but it's not good.


please let me know if this is a good feature request.

There is a DB abstraction layer in pear.  It ships with PHP.  Poke around a bit, you will find it.
