View list of data type meanings


This returns a string which is the most recent automatically allocated database key (for example, if you are using autoincrement on the primary key). Internally it is a 64-bit number, but since there is no ready mechanism for returning 64-bit numbers via the scripting interface, MUSHclient converts it to a string, and returns that.

Note: Available in version 4.40 onwards.

Lua example
last_key = DatabaseLastInsertRowid ("db")
Returns A string which is the most recently-allocated key. May be zero if there is no such key.
Introduced in version 4.40
