Once a user is entered into the system, patUser allows you to add new data to the user record, or make changes to the existing data, with its modifyUser() method. This method accepts two primary arguments: an array containing the data to be inserted, and an array containing the user ID of the record to edited and related options.

Consider the following example, which illustrates the process of editing a user record and entering new information into it:

<?php // include classes include("../include/patDbc.php"); include("../include/patUser.php"); // initialize database layer $db = new patMySqlDbc("localhost", "db211", "us111", "secret"); // initialize patUser $u = new patUser(true); // connect patUser to database $u->setAuthDbc($db); // set table $u->setAuthTable("users"); // modify record $u->modifyUser( array ( "username" => "tom", "passwd" => "tom", "email" => "tom@some.domain.com", "age" => 31, "sex" => "M", "tel" => "759 3539" ), array ( "mode" => "update", "uid" => 15 ) ); ?>
Note that in the example above, all changes will be made to the record with user ID 15. If no user ID is provided, the currently logged-in user's ID is used instead.

You can also modify group data with the corresponding modifyGroup() method. I'll leave that to you to experiment with.
