MySQL Trick: Group_Concat()

Apakah anda sering menggunakan potongan kode seperti ini:

$sql = "SELECT tag FROM contoh_table";
$rs = mysql_query( $sql );
$array_tags = array();
while( false !== ( $r = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs)))
    $array_tags[] = $r['id'];
echo "Tags: " . implode(', ', $array_tags);

Saya ada satu cara yang lebih mudah.

Yaitu, dengan menggunakan fungsi bawaan dari mysql: group_concat().

$sql = "SELECT GROUP_CONCAT(tag, '') as tags FROM contoh_table";
$rs = mysql_query( $sql );
$r = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs)
echo "Tags: " . $r['tags'];

Bagaimana? lebih sederhana kan?
