Hello,
I'm trying to read a file with very large records in it from Unix.
I have set up the following script:
declare
file_id UTL_FILE.FILE_TYPE;
linedata VARCHAR2(28000);
BEGIN
file_id := utl_file.FOPEN( '/tmp', 'largefile.txt', 'r' );
LOOP
UTL_File.get_line(file_id,linedata);
dbms_output.put_line(linedata);
END LOOP;
utl_file.fCLOSE(file_id);
EXCEPTION
WHEN utl_file.read_error THEN
RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR(-20001, 'utl_file.read_error');
END;
I get a utl_file.read_error ORA-06512 when trying to read a line with about 6000 bytes in it. Smaller lines are ok - is there some limit or workaround ?
I'm using Oracle 8i.
Any help please ?
Thank you
Jon
