It would be very useful (to me at least) if the dbx 
module included a function for returning the number of 
rows affected by an INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement.

Implementation suggestion: the function DBX_QUERY could
call the relevant database-specific function after an
update/insert/delete and save the result in the link
identifier object. A new function DBX_NUM_AFFECTED_ROWS
would retrieve this saved value from the link 

Possibly a select query would cause the 
'num_affected_rows' value to be set to 0, for neatness.

While waiting for someone to actually implement this, the following snippet (untested) might be useful:

$link = dbx_connect(DBX_MYSQL, "localhost", "db", "username", "password");
$result = dbx_query($link, "DELETE FROM table WHERE name=''");
echo mysql_affected_rows($link->handle);

Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately I am using 
Oracle (OCI8) where the 'native' function for getting 
the number of affected rows needs to be applied to the 
statement handle returned by OCIParse, not the 
connection handle returned by OCILogon.

Luckily, there is also a $result->handle that you can use :-)

Gonna close this as the DBX package has no activity, if an active maintainer takes it over then please re-open
