Note: Related Configurations

See ingres.array_index_start in Runtime Configuration



The query result identifier


index is the field whose type will be retrieved.

The possible values of index depend upon the value of ingres.array_index_start. If ingres.array_index_start is 1 (the default) then index must be between 1 and the value returned by ingres_num_fields(). If ingres.array_index_start is 0 then index must be between 0 and ingres_num_fields() - 1.

Return Values

ingres_field_type() returns the type of a field in a query result or FALSE on failure. Examples of types returned are IIAPI_BYTE_TYPE, IIAPI_CHA_TYPE, IIAPI_DTE_TYPE, IIAPI_FLT_TYPE, IIAPI_INT_TYPE, IIAPI_VCH_TYPE. Some of these types can map to more than one SQL type depending on the length of the field (see ingres_field_length()). For example IIAPI_FLT_TYPE can be a float4 or a float8. For detailed information, see the Ingres OpenAPI User Guide, Appendix "Data Types" in the Ingres documentation.
