The way to get enum values from a column

I was looking for a script to get items from ENUM column in MySQL. I found some LONG, EXTENSIVE scripts on how to do it on the Internet. Those scripts used a variety of functions and variables. I didn't even understand it :lol: . I took the idea from those scripts and created a script on my own - concise and short.

Now, I wonder at how short it is in comparison with those ones on the Internet. What do you think of my script?

Code: Select all


//connect to database

$query = "show columns from goods like 'producer'";

$r = mysqli_query($connect, $query);

$row = mysqli_fetch_array($r);

$en = $row['Type'];

//change every unwanted character to nothing. 
$table = array('enum'=>'',','=>' ','('=>'',')'=>'',"'"=>'');

$en2 = strtr($en,$table);

$table = explode(" ",$en2);

echo 'We have the following ENUM values: ';

foreach($table as $v){
echo '<b>'.$v.' </b>';

Is it alright?
