Its never good idea to just pack everything in a single class. Some general refactoring and functionality separation is needed here. Better to stick with php interal database functinalities.

Um, Why..?

Other people seem to be liking it a lot. I see absolutely no reason whatso ever to put these things in multiple files. What would it accomplish that 1 file cannot?

And to be honest, I disagree with your "Better to stick with php interal database functinalities", due to the fact that you yourself would have to code less, for example:

// Procedural
mysql_connect('localhost','root','password');
mysql_select_db('your_db');

// Object Oriented
$db = new MySQL('localhost','root','password','your_db');

// Querying
// Procedural
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM somewhere");
// or
$result = mysql_unbuffered_query("SELECT * FROM somewhere");

// Object Oriented
$result = $db->query("SELECT * FROM somewhere");
//or
$result = $db->query("SELECT * FROM somewhere", true);

// Escaping
// Procedural
$str = mysql_real_escape_string($str);

// Object Oriented
$str = $db->escape($str);



See where I am getting at? Less code for you... That and if you wanted to have multiple connections to multiples server (I don't know why) you would just make a new Object, however if you wanted to do it procedurally, you would then have to give the MySQL functions the connection handle, unlike with my object where it does it itself.
