Tell the scale of the field (PHP 5, PECL oci8:1.1-1.2.4)
int oci_field_scale ( resource statement, int field )

Returns the scale of the column with field index.

For FLOAT columns, precision is nonzero and scale is -127. If precision is 0, then column is NUMBER. Else it's NUMBER(precision, scale).

Parameters

statement

A valid OCI statement identifier.

field

Can be the field's index (1-based) or name.

Return Values

Returns the scale as an integer, or FALSE on errors.

Notes

Note:

In PHP versions before 5.0.0 you must use ocicolumnscale() instead. This name still can be used, it was left as alias of oci_field_scale() for downwards compatability. This, however, is deprecated and not recommended.
