XXVIII. FrontBase Functions
These functions allow you to access FrontBase database servers. More information about FrontBase can be found at http://www.frontbase.com/.
Documentation for FrontBase can be found at http://www.frontbase.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/FrontBase.woa/wa/productsPage?currentPage=Documentation.
Frontbase support has been added to PHP 4.0.6.
You must install the FrontBase database server or at least the fbsql client libraries to use this functions. You can get FrontBase from http://www.frontbase.com/.
In order to have these functions available, you must compile PHP with fbsql support by using the --with-fbsql[=DIR] option. If you use this option without specifying the path to fbsql, PHP will search for the fbsql client libraries in the default installation location for the platform. Users who installed FrontBase in a non standard directory should always specify the path to fbsql: --with-fbsql=/path/to/fbsql. This will force PHP to use the client libraries installed by FrontBase, avoiding any conflicts.
这些函数的行为受到全局配置文件 php.ini 的影响。
For further details and definition of the PHP_INI_* constants see ini_set().

由于这些常量是由该扩展模块定义的，因此只有在该扩展模块被编译到 PHP 中，或者在运行时被动态加载后，这些常量才有效。
