      Using Paginator with mySQL
      
			Paginator works very well with Mysql. You can easily use the base record and
			the offset with LIMIT.  Paginator comes with an extension, Paginator_html,
			that at the moment provides a couple of pre-made link sets. 
			
      To divide mySQL result sets into pages you may do the following. I assume 
			you have made a connection to your database.       

      Include the Paginator class.
      include("include/paginator.php");
      If you are using Paginator_html include that also.
      include("include/paginator_html.php");
 
      Make a query to get the number of rows in your database. You might use something like this.
      $num_rows = mysql_result(mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM your table"),0);
      
			Make a new Paginator object
      $a =& new Paginator($_GET['page'],$num_rows);
      If you are using Paginator_html make a new new Paginator_html object instead of a Paginator object.
      $a =& new Paginator_html($_GET['page'],$num_rows);
      Set the number of records to be displayed
      $a->set_Limit(4);
    
      If using numbered links this will set the number before and behind the current page.
      $a->set_Links(3);

      Get the starting point.
      $limit1 = $a->getRange1();
      Get the number of items displayed on page.
      $limit2 = $a->getRange2();

      Make your query using LIMIT
      $result=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM your table LIMIT $limit1, $limit2");
    
      Output your results in your preferred manner

      If you are using Paginator alone you will need to create your links here using the methods from 
			Paginator. See example3.php, example4.php.  

      If you are using Paginator_html you add the methods to add your links here
      $a->firstLast();
      Will make a set of links like this: 5 of 8 of 25 First | Prev | Next | Last |
      $a->previousNext();
      Will make a set of links like this: Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next
Return current item: Paginator
