Description:
------------
When using a while loop such as in the example below:


It skips over the very first entry within the table. 
Say I have 5 rows which have a lvl of 3, when printing out the name of said row, only the last 4 will print out.

Reproduce code:
---------------
mysql_connect (localhost, root, '');
mysql_select_db (Arakaron);
$result=mysql_query ("SELECT * FROM magic WHERE lvl='3'");
$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
print $row['name'];
}

Expected result:
----------------
I expect to see all 5 names of the rows instead of the last 4.

Actual result:
--------------
Only shows the very last 4 rows which have a level of 3.

your code logic is flawed.  you fetch twice before taking 
any action. drop the first '
$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);' an you should be fine.
