Hi, friends I am back to the list after a while. And I start the reunion with a question ;-). Is there any way to insert a big chunk of data (say, 100K) into a column of type long with Ruby OCI8 or by any other Ruby means? I saw that to do it in C you must be prepared to handle OCI error code inviting you to insert another piece. But how to do it in Ruby, especially with OCI8? If I do require 'oci8' db = OCI8.new 'system', 'manager' db.exec("create table sample (id number, data long)") data = 'A' * 1024 * 100 c = db.parse('insert into sample values (2, :data)') c.bind_param(':data', data) c.exec db.commit What I end up with in column 'data' is host dependent (or db block size dependent?). I observed 14464 bytes on 2K database on Solaris, and 34652 bytes on 8K database on Linux. Thank you, Gennady Bystritsky.
