For those who would like to switch to PDO and learn more about its features, there is a book on the topic titled "Learning PHP Data Objects" published by Packt Publishing in August 2007

Surely, this post should have been published long ago, but it's better later than never. So, in late August Packt published my book titled "Learning PHP Data Objects" (ISBN 978-1-847192-66-0).

Here are some links of interest:
* Overview and purchasing details: Learning PHP Data Objects on Packt Publishing
* Reviews: amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, Tiffany B. Brown, Stuart Herbert, Heuristic Blog, Kae Verens

Hi Dennis,
thank you for your book, I bought the digital version few days ago, I need to write an ORM for a project and your book is an evaluable fast track into PDO.

I have a question you might be able to answer, is there a way using PDO to set the connection charset in a driver agnostic way ?

In any case, thank you again

In reply to #2,

You can use SET NAMES SQL command to achieve that.
