msql_list_fields() retrieves information about the given tablename. Arguments are the database name and the table name. A result pointer is returned which can be used with msql_fieldflags(), msql_fieldlen(), msql_fieldname(), and msql_fieldtype(). A query identifier is a positive integer. The function returns -1 if a error occurs. A string describing the error will be placed in $phperrmsg, and unless the function was called as @msql_list_fields() then this error string will also be printed out.
