CTX_DOC Package , 5 of 10


IFILTER

Use this procedure when you need to filter binary data to text.

This procedure takes binary data (BLOB IN), filters the data through with the Inso filter, and writes the text version to a CLOB. CTX_DOC.IFILTER employs the safe callout, so can be called from a user datastore procedure, and it does not require an index to use, as CTX_DOC.FILTER does.

Requirements

Because CTX_DOC.IFILTER employs the safe callout mechanism, the SQL*Net listener must be running and configured for extproc agent startup.

Syntax

CTX_DOC.IFILTER(data IN BLOB, text IN OUT NOCOPY CLOB);
data

Specify the binary data to be filtered.

text

Specify the destination CLOB. The filtered data is placed in here. This parameter must be a valid CLOB locator that is writable. Passing NULL or a non-writable CLOB will result in an error. Filtered text will be appended to the end of existing content, if any.
