pg_loimport -- Import a large object from file


int pg_loimport (string pathname [, resource connection])

The pathname argument specifies the pathname of the file to be imported as a large object. It returns FALSE if an error occurred, oid of the just created large object otherwise.

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

Note: When safe mode is enabled, PHP checks whether the file(s)/directories you are about to operate on have the same UID as the script that is being executed.
