OCI Datatype Mapping and Manipulation Functions, 117 of 135
Converts the given hexadecimal string into a
sword OCIRefFromHex ( OCIEnv *env, OCIError *err, CONST OCISvcCtx *svc, CONST OraText *hex, ub4 length, OCIRef **ref );
The OCI environment handle initialized in object mode.
The OCI error handle. If there is an error, it is recorded in
err and this function returns OCI_ERROR. Obtain diagnostic information by calling
OCI service context handle; if the resulting ref is initialized with this service context.
Hexadecimal text string, previously output by
OCIRefToHex(), to convert into a REF.
Length of the hexadecimal text string.
REF into which the hexadecimal string is converted. If
*ref is null on input, then space for the
REF is allocated in the object cache, otherwise the memory occupied by the given
REF is re-used.
This function ensures that the resulting
REF is well formed. It does not ensure that the object pointed to by the resulting
REF exists or not.
