Yuck! What are you planning to do? Do you really really need to write
directly to the OCI or can you use one of the available Oracle extension
About a year ago, I used the oracledb module from Digital Creations with
Oracle7. It's very nice, but not optimized, and thus slow for large
queries. Since then, Digital Creations has made DCOracle
(; their commercial extension module)
open source, so I guess that will replace oracledb. I haven't looked at
it, but according to the FAQ, it's "much faster."
I strongly advise you to use an extension module or JDBC if at all
possible. Writing to the OCI is extremely ugly -- all the stuff we try to
avoid by using python!
