Ensuring MySQL connection works in PHP function#1
I have code with the following form:

function doSomething{
//Do stuff with MySQL
$con = connectToDatabase;//This would actually be a line or two.

This (type of) code doesn't work, because doSomething() doesn't have a connection to the database. Can anyone explain why not? I create the $con connection before I call doSomething(). So why does the function act as if there's no connection?

Is there any way to fix this, short of passing the connection into the function like doSomething($con)?

Re: Ensuring MySQL connection works in PHP function#3
you probably need to tell it to look in the global scope: function doSomething() { global $con; $con->tralalala(); }
