pg_lo_create

Create a large object (PHP 4 >= 4.2.0, PHP 5)
int pg_lo_create ( [resource connection] )

pg_lo_create() creates a large object and returns the OID of the large object. PostgreSQL access modes INV_READ, INV_WRITE, and INV_ARCHIVE are not supported, the object is created always with both read and write access. INV_ARCHIVE has been removed from PostgreSQL itself (version 6.3 and above).

To use the large object interface, it is necessary to enclose it within a transaction block.

Instead of using the large object interface (which has no access controls and is cumbersome to use), try PostgreSQL's bytea column type and pg_escape_bytea().

Note:

This function used to be called pg_locreate().

Parameters

connection

PostgreSQL database connection resource. When connection is not present, the default connection is used. The default connection is the last connection made by pg_connect() or pg_pconnect().

Return Values

A large object OID or FALSE on error.
