(PHP 4, PHP 5)
odbc_pconnect вЂ” Open a persistent database connection
Returns an ODBC connection id or 0 (FALSE) on error. This function is much like odbc_connect(), except that the connection is not really closed when the script has finished. Future requests for a connection with the same dsn , user , password combination (via odbc_connect() and odbc_pconnect()) can reuse the persistent connection.
Note: Persistent connections have no effect if PHP is used as a CGI program.
For information about the optional cursor_type parameter see the odbc_connect() function. For more information on persistent connections, refer to the PHP FAQ.
