(PHP 5, PECL OCI8 >= 1.1.0)

oci_field_scaleTell the scale of the field


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).



A valid OCI statement identifier.


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

Valor Retornado

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



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.
