PDO::setAttribute — Set an attribute
Sets an attribute on the database handle. Some of the available generic attributes are listed below; some drivers may make use of additional driver specific attributes.
PDO::ATTR_CASE: Force column names to a specific case.
PDO::CASE_LOWER: Force column names to lower case.
PDO::CASE_NATURAL: Leave column names as returned by the database driver.
PDO::CASE_UPPER: Force column names to upper case.
PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE: Error reporting.
PDO::ATTR_ORACLE_NULLS (available with all drivers, not just Oracle): Conversion of NULL and empty strings.
PDO::NULL_NATURAL: No conversion.
PDO::NULL_EMPTY_STRING: Empty string is converted to NULL.
PDO::NULL_TO_STRING: NULL is converted to an empty string.
PDO::ATTR_STRINGIFY_FETCHES: Convert numeric values to strings when fetching. Requires bool.
PDO::ATTR_STATEMENT_CLASS: Set user-supplied statement class derived from PDOStatement. Cannot be used with persistent PDO instances. Requires array(string classname, array(mixed constructor_args)).
PDO::ATTR_TIMEOUT: Specifies the timeout duration in seconds. Not all drivers support this option, and it's meaning may differ from driver to driver. For example, sqlite will wait for up to this time value before giving up on obtaining an writable lock, but other drivers may interpret this as a connect or a read timeout interval. Requires int.
PDO::ATTR_AUTOCOMMIT (available in OCI, Firebird and MySQL): Whether to autocommit every single statement.
PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_USE_BUFFERED_QUERY (available in MySQL): Use buffered queries.
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
