    I sentance in UTL_RAW reference.

      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.
