OCI-Lob->setBuffering -- Changes current state of buffering for the large object


class OCI-Lob {

bool setBuffering ( bool on_off )


lob->setBuffering() sets the buffering for the large object, depending on the value of the on_off parameter. Repeated calls to lob->setBuffering() with the same flag will return TRUE. The values for on_off are: TRUE for on and FALSE for off.

Use of this function may provide performance improvements by buffering small reads and writes of LOBs by reducing the number of network round-trips and LOB versions. oci_lob_flush() should be used to flush buffers, when you have finished working with the large object.

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
