Hi,

1.
you should be able to call a pgsql function with pg_exec("select my_function_from_pgsql('$val')");

this should work

2.

you can write a function like this -

$numfilelds = pg_numfields($result);
//the number of columns affected by the query
$fileds = array();
for ($i=0; $i < $numfields; $i++) {
   $fields[] = pg_fieldname($fields, $i);
}
array with numeric key
this will fill the $fields array with the pgsql fieldnames.

or you can to it also this way:
  $f_name = pg_fieldname($fields, $i);
      $fields[$f_name] = $f_name;

you get an array the key representing the pgsql fieldname.

hope it helps

thanks kalosi,

      can u please tell me how to capture the return values(could be more than one) from the function(stored procedure).

   Regarding binding don't we have a built in function for binding php variables as we do in oracle

 (oracle: ocibindbyname(column_name,php_variable) )

    thanks in advance.
