Examples

Example #1 pg_lo_tell() example

<?php
   $doc_oid 
189762345;
   
$database pg_connect("dbname=jacarta");
   
pg_query($database"begin");
   
$handle pg_lo_open($database$doc_oid"r");
   
// Skip first 50000 bytes
   
pg_lo_seek($handle50000PGSQL_SEEK_SET);
   
// See how far we've skipped
   
$offset pg_lo_tell($handle);
   echo 
"Seek position is: $offset";
   
pg_query($database"commit");
