1.4.5 Cursor Options

Once you have connected to the database you will need a Cursor object with which to manipulate the database. Cursor stands for a "CURrent Set Of Results".

Once we have the connection to the database, connection, we can easily create a cursor by calling the connection's cursor() method.

import web, web.database
connection = web.database.connect(adapter="mysql", database="test")
cursor = connection.cursor()

The next sections show you the different ways to use the cursor.
