In Laravel, the offset and limit methods can be used to paginate database queries.


Here is an example of how to use offset and limit in Laravel:

1

use AppModelsUser;

$users = User::offset(0) // Starting point of the results
            ->limit(10) // Number of results to return
            ->get();


In this example, we are querying the User model to retrieve a maximum of 10 users, starting from the first user in the database (offset 0). This will effectively return the first 10 users in the database.


You can adjust the offset and limit values to paginate through your database results.


Additionally, you can also use the skip() method as an alternative to offset().

$users = User::skip(10) // Skip the first 10 results
            ->take(10) // Return the next 10 results
            ->get();


This code snippet would fetch the next 10 users after skipping the first 10 results.


Remember to always evaluate performance implications when using offset and limit for pagination, especially with large datasets. Consider using Laravel's pagination methods for more complex pagination requirements.
