Description Author

This is a base class for implementing an SQL database access abstraction.

It provides an easy way to deal with databases. it will escape your values by using smart question marks parameters in conditions strings, return most of result in php array instead of resource result set (but you still can access the resource if you really want it) and will assist you in most common databases operation such as establishing database connections, opening a database, quoting a string value, executing a query, retrieving query results as an array, listing the database tables, get the keys of a table, optimizing a table, retrieving the last error that occurred, etc..
It also permit to work on multiple databases and to get unique instances of database connection in a simple way "db::getInstance()"

It also include a class dbProfiler to help you profiling your queries.

#- History
I've created first version of class-db in 2003 (in fact it was only
class-mysqldb at this time) to assist me dealing with mysql database
common operation. after some change and i finally split it in a two
class: class-db and class-mysqldb in 2006 (there was already a sqlite
wrapper too at this time)
Over the time i added it some stuff as some methods to paginate results
and one of my favourite the smart question marks in conditions strings.
(still in 2006). I also added the possibility to have a single
instance of the same database connection (since 2007) and a new
decorator dbProfiler class to help profiling your application in 2008
and there we are.
