Returns the name of the character set
This extension is deprecated as of PHP 5.5.0, and will be removed in the future. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQL extension should be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information. Alternatives to this function include:
string mysql_client_encoding(resource link_identifier= =NULL);
character_set variable from
The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not
specified, the last link opened by
is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to
create one as if
was called with no arguments. If no connection is found
or established, an
error is generated.
Returns the default character set name for the current connection.
<?php $link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password'); $charset = mysql_client_encoding($link); echo "The current character set is: $charset\n"; ?>
The above example will output something similar to:
The current character set is: latin1
