ocinewdescriptor

(PHP 3>= 3.0.7, PHP 4 , PHP 5)

ocinewdescriptor --  Initialize a new empty LOB or FILE descriptor

Description

object ocinewdescriptor ( resource connection [, int type])

ocinewdescriptor() allocates storage to hold descriptors or LOB locators. Valid values for type are OCI_D_FILE, OCI_D_LOB and OCI_D_ROWID. For LOB descriptors, the methods load, save, and savefile are associated with the descriptor, for BFILE only the load method exists. See the second example usage hints.

Example 1. ocinewdescriptor() example

<?php   
    
/* This script is designed to be called from a HTML form.
     * It expects $user, $password, $table, $where, and $commitsize
     * to be passed in from the form.  The script then deletes
     * the selected rows using the ROWID and commits after each
     * set of $commitsize rows. (Use with care, there is no rollback)
     */
    
$conn = OCILogon($user, $password);
    
$stmt = OCIParse($conn, "select rowid from $table $where");
    
$rowid = OCINewDescriptor($conn, OCI_D_ROWID);

<?php

?>

Note: This function was renamed to oci_new_descriptor() after PHP >= 5.0.0. For downward compatibility ocinewdescriptor() can also be used. This is deprecated, however.
