ibase_blob_get

Get len bytes data from open blob (PHP 4, PHP 5)
string ibase_blob_get ( resource blob_handle, int len )

This function returns at most len bytes from a BLOB that has been opened for reading by ibase_blob_open().

Note:

It is not possible to read from a BLOB that has been opened for writing by ibase_blob_create().

Parameters

blob_handle

A BLOB handle opened with ibase_blob_open().

len

Size of returned data.

Return Values

Examples

Example 679. ibase_blob_get() example

<?php
$result    
= ibase_query("SELECT blob_value FROM table");
$data      = ibase_fetch_object($result);
$blob_data = ibase_blob_info($data->BLOB_VALUE);
$blob_hndl = ibase_blob_open($data->BLOB_VALUE);
echo        
ibase_blob_get($blob_hndl, $blob_data[0]);
?>


Whilst this example doesn't do much more than a 'ibase_blob_echo($data->BLOB_VALUE)' would do, it does show you how to get information into a $variable to manipulate as you please.
