Subject: [thelist] Download .csv from MySQL with PHP

I have a MySQL database, and am using ADOdb and PHP to extract the data
and display it as HTML.  Above each HTML table, I want to have a link
that the user can click and download the data that is displayed on
screen in .csv or tab delimited format, so that they can pull it into

I found out how to display the .csv on screen with a <pre> element, but
downloading it has been altogether another issue.
