Paging Class using PHP and MySQL

Based on my last post on paging using PHP and MySQL, I have coded this class. It is very easy to implement and it will save your time. Here is a code snippet to show how simple to use it.

//include the class file
include('Pager.php');
 
//making connection to the database
mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', '');
mysql_select_db('test');
 
//prepare SQL
$sql = 'SELECT * FROM books';
 
//create an object of Pager passing the SQL
$pager = new Pager($sql);
 
//set the url. this is the current page
$pager->url = 'index.php';
 
//set number of rows. by default it is 10
$pager->rowPerPage = 5;
 
//build the pager
$pager->build();
 
//get paged data
$rows = $pager->getPagedData();
