Google DataStore PHP GDS fetchPage from record

PHP-GDS provides the following method:

$obj_store->fetchPage(10); // Gets the first 10 books

However this only works within the same connection, I'd like to use something like:

$obj_store->fetchPage(n, 10);

so I can get a set of items from separate API calls, e.g.:

api.php?page=1&items=10 // items 0-10
api.php?page=2&items=10 // items 11-20
api.php?page=3&items=10 // items 21-30

Thank you.

You can do exactly what you are asking, the second parameter to fetchPage() is the OFFSET.

fetchPage(10); // gets first 10

fetchPage(10, 10); // gets 11-20

fetchPage(10, 20); // gets 21-30

This can be expensive, as fetchPage(10, 5000) will scan 5,010 rows. You may be better off using cursors if your offsets are going to be large.
