Are recordsets still used in PHP?  The reason why I ask is because in ASP I always use a formula like:

Do while not rs.eof
variable = rs("field")
variable = rs("field")

To make a loop.

I don't know asp, but do you mean something like this:

$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
      $variable = $row['field'];
        $variable2 = $row['field2'];
}

What about a movenext function.  Like this is what I'm used to:

 rs.movenext
   if not rs.eof then
  variable = rs("field")

the while loop will automatically move through the recordset until nothing is left.  you don't need to increment it manually
