oci_field_type_raw

Tell the raw Oracle data type of the field (PHP 5, PECL oci8:1.1-1.2.4)
int oci_field_type_raw ( resource statement, int field )

Returns Oracle's raw data type of the field.

However, if you want to get field's type, then oci_field_type() will suit you better.

Parameters

statement

A valid OCI statement identifier.

field

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

Return Values

Returns Oracle's raw data type as a string, or FALSE on errors.

Notes

Note:

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