PHP to get enum/set values from mysql field

This function returns an array with the elements allowed in a ENUM or SET mysql field. This can be usefull if you’re making some automation and need to retrieve those values without writing them in your code:

function set_and_enum_values( $table , $field ){
	$query = "SHOW COLUMNS FROM `$table` LIKE '$field'";
	$result = mysql_query( $query ) or die( 'Error getting Enum/Set field ' . mysql_error() );
	$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
	if(stripos(".".$row[1],"enum(") > 0) $row[1]=str_replace("enum('","",$row[1]);
		else $row[1]=str_replace("set('","",$row[1]);
	$ar = split("\n",$row[1]);
	for ($i=0;$i<count($ar);$i++) $arOut[str_replace("''","'",$ar[$i])]=str_replace("''","'",$ar[$i]);
	return $arOut ;
