mssql_connect — Open MS SQL server connection
([ string $servername
[, string $username
[, string $password
[, bool $new_link
The link to the server will be closed as soon as the execution of
the script ends, unless it's closed earlier by explicitly calling
The MS SQL server. It can also include a port number. e.g.
If a second call is made to mssql_connect() with the
same arguments, no new link will be established, but instead, the link
identifier of the already opened link will be returned. This parameter
modifies this behavior and makes mssql_connect()
always open a new link, even if mssql_connect() was
called before with the same parameters.
Returns a MS SQL link identifier on success, or FALSE on error.
