SPI_cursor_move -- move a cursor


void SPI_cursor_move(Portal portal, bool forward, long count)


SPI_cursor_move skips over some number of rows in a cursor. This is equivalent to a subset of the SQL command MOVE (see SPI_scroll_cursor_move for more functionality).


Portal portal

portal containing the cursor

bool forward

true for move forward, false for move backward

long count

maximum number of rows to move


Moving backward may fail if the cursor's plan was not created with the CURSOR_OPT_SCROLL option.
