Constructor Details

#initialize(conn, contents = nil) ⇒ OCI8::BLOB

Creates a temporary BLOB when contents is not nil. Otherwise, it creates an uninitialized lob, which is used internally to fetch BLOB column data.

Examples:

# Inserts a file name and its contents as BLOB.
clob = OCI8::BLOB.new(conn, File.read(file_name, :mode => 'rb'))
conn.exec('insert into file_contents values (:1, :2)', file_name, clob)
