I have a mapserver+php+mapscript that will query on a shapefile database on a single layer, through its atributes.

The system will give as result a set of items on a result list as a first step. 
Then as a second step a map displaying these results should be given.

my doubt is: to create this result list which will be best strategy: 
- use PHPMapScript to query against the mapfile ?
- simply use PHP dBase functions to query against dBase files of the mapfile?

which one is the best/fastest alternative?

best regards.
