for (
$i 1$i <= $ncols$i++) {
    echo 
oci_field_name($stid$i) . " " oci_field_type($stid$i) . "<br>\n";

?>

Notes

Note:

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