Re: Inserting Large Amount of Data into LONG

Bill,

You can use SQL Loader with the STR attribute on the INFILE line e.g.

LOAD DATA
INFILE infile.dat "STR x'120A'"
INTO TABLE mytab

This says that the end of record delimiter is hex(120a) i.e. hex(12) + newline.
Tom Kyte's Expert one-on-one bo0k Chapter 9 has all the details plus some other
options.

I'm sure you could also do it via scripting languages such as Perl and Python
and use an appropriate database driver (standard DBD/DBI for Perl and say
cx_Oracle for Python).

HTH.

Chris
