Zebra_Database it is an advanced, compact (one-file only), lightweight, MySQL database wrapper built upon PHP's MySQL extension. It provides methods for interacting with MySQL databases that are more powerful and intuitive to use than PHP's default ones.

It supports transactions and provides ways for caching query results either by saving cached data on the disk, or by using memcache.

The class provides a comprehensive debugging interface with detailed information about the executed queries: execution time, returned/affected rows, excerpts of the found rows, error messages, etc. It also automatically EXPLAIN's each SELECT query (so you don't miss those keys again!).

It encourages developers to write maintainable code and provides a better default security layer by encouraging the use of prepared statements, where parameters are automatically escaped.

Code is heavily commented and generates no warnings/errors/notices when PHP's error reporting level is set to E_ALL
