Returns an array with elements describing various properties of blob . You obtain the correct value for blob by doing a SELECT query and fetching the respective BLOB column's content.
Available in PHP 3 since 3.0.7, PHP 4 since 4.0RC1
In PHP 3, the returned array was indexed both numerically and associatively. Associative indexes were not included in the module's port to PHP 4, but this functionality is likely to return in the future.
$con = ibase_connect("/path/to/employees.gdb", "username", "password"); $res = ibase_query("SELECT image FROM employees WHERE emp_id = 1"); $row = ibase_fetch_row($res); $blob = $row; $info = ibase_blob_info($blob); echo "Length: $info\n"; echo "Number of segments: $info\n"; echo "Maximum length of a segment: $info\n"; echo "Blob is stream: $info\n"; echo "Blob is null: $info\n";
