Code Examples

pg_lo_write( PgSql\Lob$lob, string$data, [int|null$length = null] ): int|false

To use the large object interface, it is necessary to enclose it within a transaction block.


This function used to be called pg_lowrite.

The data to be written to the large object. If length is an int and is less than the length of data, only length bytes will be written.


An optional maximum number of bytes to write. Must be greater than zero and no greater than the length of data. Defaults to the length of data.

Return Values

The number of bytes written to the large object, or false on error.
