SPI_modifytuple

Name

SPI_modifytuple -- create a row by replacing selected fields of a given row

Synopsis

HeapTuple SPI_modifytuple(Relation rel, HeapTuple row, ncols, colnum, Datum * values, const char * nulls)

Description

SPI_modifytuple creates a new row by substituting new values for selected columns, copying the original row's columns at other positions. The input row is not modified.

Arguments

Relation rel

Used only as the source of the row descriptor for the row. (Passing a relation rather than a row descriptor is a misfeature.)

HeapTuple row

row to be modified

int ncols

number of column numbers in the array colnum

int * colnum

array of the numbers of the columns that are to be changed (count starts at 1)

Datum * values

new values for the specified columns

const char * Nulls

which new values are null, if any (see SPI_execp for the format)

Return Value

new row with modifications, allocated in the upper executor context; NULL only if row is NULL

On error, SPI_result is set as follows:

SPI_ERROR_ARGUMENT

if rel is NULL, or if row is NULL, or if ncols is less than or equal to 0, or if colnum is NULL, or if values is NULL.

SPI_ERROR_NOATTRIBUTE

if colnum contains an invalid column number (less than or equal to 0 or greater than the number of column in row)
