$conn oci_connect("scott""tiger");

echo "<html><body>";
$conn oci_connect("scott""tiger");
$count_cursor "CURSOR(select count(empno) num_emps from emp " .
                
"where emp.deptno = dept.deptno) as EMPCNT from dept";
$stmt oci_parse($conn"select deptno,dname,$count_cursor");

    echo 
"<tr>";
    
$dname  $data["DNAME"];
    
$deptno $data["DEPTNO"];
    echo 
"<td>$dname</td>";
    echo 
"<td>$deptno</td>";
    
oci_execute($data["EMPCNT"]);
    while (
$subdata oci_fetch_assoc($data["EMPCNT"])) {
        
$num_emps $subdata["NUM_EMPS"];
        echo  
"<td>$num_emps</td>";
    }
    echo 
"</tr>";
}
echo 
"</table>";
echo 
"</body></html>";
oci_free_statement($stmt);
oci_close($conn);
?>

Notes

Note:

In PHP versions before 5.0.0 you must use ocinewcursor() instead. This name still can be used, it was left as alias of oci_new_cursor() for downwards compatability. This, however, is deprecated and not recommended.
