SQL RAW Type and BLOBs
SQL RAW types and BLOBs are handled as follows:
- In PL/SQL: BLOBs to be selected into a RAW.
- In OCI and other interfaces: Defining any local memory buffer, such as a char array in C, on a BLOB is enabled. You can define a buffer of any type in a C program for a BLOB column as SQLT_RAW type.
