Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

PEAR (PHP Extension and Application Repository) is a large collection of PHP modules available for various purposes. PEAR modules can be used to handle database tasks, create HTML tables and forms, parse email and more.  The PEAR authors have created something similar to CPAN for PHP. CPAN (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network) is a unique repository of Perl.

PEAR is still in its infancy, but already contains a myriad of modules that make programming faster and easier. One module is the PEAR DB module, written in a form comparable to its older Perl DBI cousin. Many conventions are strikingly similar, especially through using the ‘?’ character for placeholders.

PEAR DB is simpler and smaller than the OCI8 module, consequently it lacks support for dynamic cursors. If application plans include dynamic cursors (REF cursors in Oracle jargon), PEAR DB is not an option. On the other hand, PEAR DB does not require any special considerations for LOB variables and columns. It treats them just like any other variable type.

This chapter describes how to use PEAR DB and gives brief examples of how to use other PEAR modules, such as the module for creating HTML forms and converting a result set to an HTML table.  This chapter is organized as follows:

  • Connecting to Oracle.

  • Querying Database and Fetching Rows.

  • Auxiliary Methods.

  • Preparing SQL Statements

  • HTML_Table Module

  • HTML_Form Module

  • Conclusion
