oci_errorReturns the last error found


array oci_error ([ resource $resource ] )

Returns the last error found.

The function should be called immediately after an error occurs. Errors are cleared by a successful statement.



For most errors, resource is the resource handle that was passed to the failing function call. For connection errors with oci_connect(), oci_new_connect() or oci_pconnect() do not pass resource.

If no error is found, oci_error() returns FALSE. Otherwise, oci_error() returns the error information as an associative array.

Please note that, unlike equivalent functions in other DB extensions, skipping the resource argument is not synonym for "just get last error".
