Since version 3.0.6 and 4.0


Example 582. Create and update a char datatype

$db = ifx_connect("stores7@ol","informix","informix");

// create param id for first char column
$tid = ifx_create_char("This is the text in the first CHAR column.\n");
// create param id for seccond char column
$bid = ifx_create_char("This is the text in the second CHAR column.\n");

ifx_update_char($tid,"This is still the text in the first CHAR column.\n");
ifx_update_char($bid,"This is still the text in the second CHAR column.\n");

// store both param ids in the param param array
$paramarray[0] = $tid;
$paramarray[1] = $bid;

// update, note the absence of a where clause(pretty useless) 
$query = "update testparams set t = ?, b = ?";                             
$result = ifx_query($query, $db, $paramarray);

// destroy params
