dbSetDataMappings(res, flds, ...)



An object inheriting from DBIResult.


a field description object as returned by dbColumnInfo.


Other arguments passed on to methods.


Sets one or more conversion functions to handle the translation of DBMS data types to R objects. This is only needed for non-primitive data, since all DBI drivers handle the common base types (integers, numeric, strings, etc.)

The details on conversion functions (e.g., arguments, whether they can invoke initializers and/or destructors) have not been specified.
