Code Examples / Notes » ora_numrows

The "oracle" extension has been obsoleted and replaced by the "oci8" extension. Use oci_num_rows() as a replacement for ora_numrows().
ora_rows returns the row number of the actual fetched cursor.
So you can control the position of the cursor in the whole fetched data for the cursor.
It is important to note that this function acts more as a counter of the number of rows fetched from the cursor. If you execute this prior to processing the cursor you will always get a 0 for an answer.
The online manual and one of my PHP reference books does not make that distinction. Some may expect this to count the number of rows in the cursor prior to processing. This function does not do that.
