Oracle dbms_output.put_line

Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Oracle dbms_output.put_line

The Oracle dbms_output.put_line procedure allows you to write data to flat file or to direct your PL/SQL output to a screen.

Here is a code example using dbms_output.put_line:

dbms_output.put_line('Fixed IO/SEC:'||to_char(fixed_io_per_sec,'9,999,999.99'));
dbms_output.put_line('Temp IO/SEC :'||to_char(temp_io_per_sec, '9,999,999.99'));
dbms_output.put_line('Total IO/SEC:'||to_char(tot_io_Per_Sec, '9,999,999.99'));

dbms_output.put_line('FS1 Blocks = '||v_fs1_blocks);
dbms_output.put_line('FS2 Blocks = '||v_fs2_blocks);
dbms_output.put_line('FS3 Blocks = '||v_fs3_blocks);
dbms_output.put_line('FS4 Blocks = '||v_fs4_blocks);
dbms_output.put_line('Full Blocks = '||v_full_blocks);


PL/SQL functions like the dbms_output.put_line procedure will also trims off white space.

The leading and training spaces will be removed when placed in the buffer.

Here is an example of dbms_output.put_line used to remove spaces:

dbms_output.put_line (?     This has spaces.   ?); 

The above example Oracle dbms_output.put_line would remove the spaces before and after the phrase "This has spaces".
