ociresult() returns the data for column column in the current row (see ocifetch()). ociresult() will return everything as strings except for abstract types (ROWIDs, LOBs and FILEs).
You can either use the column-number (1-Based) or the column-name, in uppercase, for the col parameter.
Note: This function was renamed to oci_result() after PHP >= 5.0.0. For downward compatibility ociresult() can also be used. This is deprecated, however.
