This bug has been fixed in SVN.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on
pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

Here is the message reported in IRC:

< mslade> I'm trying to prepare and exec a simple select on MySQL,
and am getting a "not supported" error. getUserInfo reveals "Error
message: 1 for 0 is not a supported column type"

The API docs at
use null instead of true as the default value for the method.

The documentation should be correct, see the _wrapResult() method. What
error are you getting?

The end-user documentation at
has incorrect documentation for the prepare() method's third parameter
($return_types). The current documentation states:

"Since DML (data manipulation language - INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE)
statements have different return values than data fetches the prepare()
accepts a third parameter. This parameter should be set to
MDB2_PREPARE_MANIP for DML statements. For data reads it should either
be set to MDB2_PREPARE_RESULT, an array of data types for each of the
columns in the result set or TRUE in order to automatically detect the
data types in the result set."

This is incorrect as passing "TRUE" for $result_types results in an
error instead of automatic type detection. The correct value to pass for
automatic type detection is null (or you can simply not specify the
third parameter).
