Syntax

sword OCINlsNameMap ( void             *hndl, 
                      OraText          *buf, 
                      size_t           buflen, 
                      const OraText    *srcbuf, 
                      uword            flag );

Parameters

hndl (IN/OUT)

OCI environment or user session handle. If the handle is invalid, then the function returns OCI_INVALID_HANDLE.

buf (OUT)

Points to the destination buffer. If the function returns OCI_SUCCESS, then the parameter contains a NULL-terminated string for the requested name.

buflen (IN)

The size of the destination buffer. The recommended size is OCI_NLS_MAXBUFSZ to guarantee storage of a globalization support name. If the size of the destination buffer is smaller than the length of the name, then the function returns OCI_ERROR.

srcbuf (IN)

Pointer to a NULL-terminated globalization support name. If it is not a valid name, then the function returns OCI_ERROR.

flag (IN)

It specifies the direction of the name mapping and can take the following values:

  • OCI_NLS_CS_IANA_TO_ORA: Map character set name from IANA to Oracle Database
  • OCI_NLS_CS_ORA_TO_IANA: Map character set name from Oracle Database to IANA
  • OCI_NLS_LANG_ISO_TO_ORA: Map language name from ISO to Oracle Database
  • OCI_NLS_LANG_ORA_TO_ISO: Map language name from Oracle Database to ISO
  • OCI_NLS_LOCALE_A2_ISO_TO_ORA: Map locale name from A2 ISO to Oracle Database
  • OCI_NLS_LOCALE_ORA_TO_A2_ISO: Map locale name from Oracle Database to A2 ISO
