NAME

       SPI_prepare_cursor - prepare a statement, without executing it yet

SYNOPSIS

       SPIPlanPtr SPI_prepare_cursor(const char * command, int nargs,
                                     Oid * argtypes, int cursorOptions)

DESCRIPTION

       SPI_prepare_cursor is identical to SPI_prepare, except that it also allows specification
       of the planner's “cursor options” parameter. This is a bit mask having the values shown in
       nodes/parsenodes.h for the options field of DeclareCursorStmt.  SPI_prepare always takes
       the cursor options as zero.

ARGUMENTS

       const char * command
           command string

       int nargs
           number of input parameters ($1, $2, etc.)

       Oid * argtypes
           pointer to an array containing the OIDs of the data types of the parameters

       int cursorOptions
           integer bit mask of cursor options; zero produces default behavior

RETURN VALUE

       SPI_prepare_cursor has the same return conventions as SPI_prepare.

NOTES

       Useful bits to set in cursorOptions include CURSOR_OPT_SCROLL, CURSOR_OPT_NO_SCROLL,
       CURSOR_OPT_FAST_PLAN, CURSOR_OPT_GENERIC_PLAN, and CURSOR_OPT_CUSTOM_PLAN. Note in
       particular that CURSOR_OPT_HOLD is ignored.
