I am converting a program from PHP 5.6 to use PHP 7.4. And I am confused about  PDO.
I thought in using PHP 7.4, I would need to change all of my SQL statements to use PDO syntax.
But I am finding out, that doesn't seem to be the case. I understand PDO is probably the better
approach of the two.
Could someone be as so kind to clarify for me ??
Thank you in advance.
