OCI Datatype Mapping and Manipulation Functions, 126 of 135
Gets a pointer to the text of a given string.
The OCI environment handle initialized in object mode.
Pointer to the OCIString object whose character string will be returned. If
vs is in UTF-16, the returned buffer will also be UTF-16. If you want to know the encoding of the returned buffer, check the UTF-16 information in the OCIString
vs itself, since it is not guaranteed that a particular OCIString must have the same setting as
env does. The function to check should be some object OCI function designed to check member fields in objects.
