I am looking for a way to identify the name of the procedure from within that procedure, something like $0 of Unix. Is this possible?
I need to log errors in a table, and want to identify the procedure that caused the error. Other options are are welcome.

Thanks!

Now that is useful. How stupid of me never to think of using conditional compilation like that.

Thanks Michel.

10.2 and up.
This is why I always say: "Always post your Oracle version (4 decimals)".
