PHP Manual


(PHP 5, PECL oci8:1.1-1.2.4)

oci_parsePrepares Oracle statement for execution


resource oci_parse ( resource $connection , string $query )

Prepares the query using connection and returns the statement identifier, which can be used with oci_bind_by_name(), oci_execute() and other functions.



An Oracle connection identifier, returned by oci_connect() or oci_pconnect().


The SQL query.

Return Values

Returns a statement handler on success, or FALSE on error.


Note: This function does not validate query . The only way to find out if query is valid SQL or PL/SQL statement - is to execute it.

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