Note that the reason I say if you aren't doing this for a green screen subfile you'll need to do
things differently is that most other environments are stateless. So you can't simply do a fetch next
from an open cursor.

Here's a System i Network article that demonstrates a technique to provide "search engine like"
results pages to a web browser.

Subject: RE: SQL Query : Fetch Next 10 rows

How are you running the query and what are you doing with the data?

For what you are trying to do, a cursor with a block fetch is probably a
better solution...

exec SQL declare cursor C1 for 'Select * from faplo';

exec SQL fetch C1 for 10 rows into :myArray;

This technique would be useful in a green screen subfile program.

If you want similar results in another environment, you'll probably have
to handle things differently.
