I sentance in UTL_RAW reference.
Apr 3, 2013 11:14 PM
Can someone explain what "it may actually be used in other environments" means in UTL_RAW section in Oracle® Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference
11g Release 2 (11.2) E25788-04 ?
It saids, "UTL_RAW is not specific to the database environment, and _*it may actually be used in other environments*_. For this reason, the prefix UTL has been given to the package, instead of DBMS."
It seems there are reason why some package have DBMS_ and others have UTL_ and etc. It is kind of hard to find what are differences and why.
Please explain it.
Thank you in advance.
