What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



ora_getcolumn — Gets data from a fetched row.


mixed ora_getcolumn(cursor, column);
resource cursor: Cursor handle
mixed column: Column name or number


Row data; FALSE on error


Returns the contents of the specified column. Remember that column names should be specified in uppercase.

An error returned from this function may be a false positive, as errors can be caused by other factors such as an empty string in the column. ora_errorcode() returns a nonzero value only if a true error occurs, so this should be used to detect an error instead. Note that the strict typing operators (===, !==, etc...) can be used as well. For example:

while (FALSE !== ($col = ora_getcolumn ($x))) {...}


As of versions 3.0 and 4.0


Example 891. Display result data

// open a conection
if (!$db = @ora_logon("dev@ORCL","dev")) {
   $error = ora_error();
   printf("There was an error connecting. Error was: %s", $error);

// open a cursor
$curs = ora_open($db);

// check that SQL is OK
if (!@ora_parse($curs,"SELECT * FROM phone_numbers")) {
   echo "Error in parse. Error was :", ora_error($curs);
} else {
   while (ora_fetch($curs)) {
      printf("%s\n", ora_getcolumn($curs, "PHONE_NUMBER"));
