(PHP 5)

oci_parse -- Prepares Oracle statement for execution


resource oci_parse ( resource connection, string query )

oci_parse() prepares the query using connection and returns the statement identifier, which can be used with oci_bind_by_name(), oci_execute() and other functions.

Note: This function does not validate query. The only way to find out if query is valid SQL or PL/SQL statement - is to execute it.

oci_parse() returns FALSE on error.

Note: In PHP versions before 5.0.0 you must use ociparse() instead. This name still can be used, it was left as alias of oci_parse() for downwards compatability. This, however, is deprecated and not recommended.
