Purpose: connection layer to MySQL with PHP5.0, using stdClass for basic 
container of data. Use of try/catch block allowing handy way to display 
error.
/********************************************************************/

/********************************************************************/
Functionality:
The class focus on the readability of the SQL
/********************************************************************/

This class aims to make easy the exchange of data with MySQL 
using php.

- The update, insert and delete are handled by a function (setQuery)
- The select query returns an array of stdClass objects (getResult, getRecord)

I tested the class on a full project. In this project, 
the connection is only one layer. Validation of the data and 
their parsing is handled by other classes. 

I suppose everybody has his own way to validate and display the error.

How to use it:
1: setup the database
- open a MySQL console, open the text file db.sav
- the first line create a database test1
- the other line create a table named test_table

2: use the example
- load the page example.php and the class connection.php into a class 
folder. The script example.php shows many ways of the use of the class.
