"codeigniter, result() vs. result_array()" Answer’s


Result has an optional $type parameter which decides what type of result is returned. By default ($type = "object"), it returns an object (result_object()). It can be set to "array", then it will return an array of result, that being equivalent of caling result_array(). The third version accepts a custom class to use as a result object.

The code from CodeIgniter:

* Query result. Acts as a wrapper function for the following functions.
* @param string $type 'object', 'array' or a custom class name
* @return array
public function result($type = 'object')
    if ($type === 'array')
        return $this->result_array();
    elseif ($type === 'object')
        return $this->result_object();
        return $this->custom_result_object($type);

Arrays are technically faster, but they are not objects. It depends where do you want to use the result. Most of the time, arrays are sufficient.
