Using the AR implementation of CI with oci8 requires one to remove the double quote in $_escape_char within oci8_driver.php. For a trivial feature this is nowhere near obvious and should be highlighted in the tutorial and/or in the CI database section of documentation.

It is not required to remove it - if that was the case, it wouldn't be there in the first place. The double quote IS the escape character in Oracle databases. I'll have to dig some more into that to see why it complains about it in some cases though.


Turns out, when you escape identifiers in Oracle you're also explicitly setting them to be case-sensitive, so you must take care of writing field and table names as they were declared on creation.
