View Full Version : understanding mysqli_stmt_bind_param

09-05-2012, 10:17 PM
Hi, I have read php.net page covering mysqli_stmt_bind_param and looked around at a couple of other pages on the function, but cant seem to work out what I would use it for. The code says:

"Binds variables to a prepared statement as parameters"

I have looked through the code examples but cant work out what it means.

I would like to know as I have been advised to read up on the function and don't want to ignore that advice.

If someone could give a guide for an idiot I would be greatful
