I hope you're all doing well. I have a question regarding the `store_result()` function in PHP. I've been working on a project recently and came across this function, but I'm a bit confused about how it works and what it does exactly.
To give you some context, I'm building a web application that interacts with a MySQL database. I'm running some queries using the `mysqli` extension in PHP, and I noticed that after executing a statement and fetching the results, some examples I've come across also include the `store_result()` function.
I understand that `store_result()` "stores" the result set from a query on the client-side. But I'm not entirely sure why it's necessary or when it should be used. I've read some explanations, but they seem a bit technical and confusing for me as a beginner.
If someone could kindly explain to me what the `store_result()` function does, that would be greatly appreciated. Additionally, it would be very helpful if you could provide me with a simple example of how it should be used in practice.
Thank you so much for your time and expertise. I'm looking forward to learning from all of you!
