what is pagination

Many Web applications involve the processing of huge result sets where you have to display a finite number of results per page for easier viewing across pages. Pagination is the most common way to handle large amounts of data in more manageable chunks -- i.e. using PREVIOUS and NEXT options. Hence a mechanism for efficiently processing and displaying the results to the user is of paramount importance. For example consider Google Search. It displays 10 records per page (or the user can define the number of records per page) regardless of the number of results (records) retrieved for a given search string.
