(PHP 5)

oci_field_scale -- Tell the scale of the field


int oci_field_scale ( resource statement, int field )

Returns scale of the column with field index (1-based) or FALSE if there is no such field.

For FLOAT columns, precision is nonzero and scale is -127. If precision is 0, then column is NUMBER. Else it's NUMBER(precision, scale).

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

See also oci_field_precision() and oci_field_type().
