     * the selected rows using the ROWID and commits after each
     * set of $commitsize rows. (Use with care, there is no rollback)

oci_new_descriptor() returns FALSE on error.

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