Zend_Paginator is a flexible component for paginating collections of data and presenting that data to users.
The primary design goals of Zend_Paginator are as follows:
Paginate arbitrary data, not just relational databases
Fetch only the results that need to be displayed
Do not force users to adhere to only one way of displaying data or rendering pagination controls
Loosely couple Zend_Paginator to other Zend Framework components so that users who wish to use it independently of Zend_View, Zend_Db, etc. can do so
